Cesc Fabregas is a wily fox when it comes to football and he tried a new trick during Chelsea’s 0-0 draw with Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The 31-year-old came on in the 65th minutes of the game for Jorginho as the Blues looked to push for a winner, but the Spaniard couldn’t help to unlock the stubborn Toffees defence that kept Chelsea out the whole game.

In the dying minutes of the game the Blues got a free-kick around the edge of the box and Eden Hazard looked to step up and whip the ball into the mixer.
However, before he could do so referee Kevin Friend put down the obligatory ‘vanishing spray’ before turning his back on Fabregas and Hazard before walking the ten steps for the defence to move back.
But with the referee’s back turned, Fabregas decided to pick up the spray and move it a couple of yards further forward in order to give Hazard a better angle to cross the ball in.
It didn’t really work, however as the Blues didn’t manage to get the winning goal in the end, but Chelsea supporters loved what the Spaniard tried to do.
Fabregas is becoming something of an impact player for the Blues right now, often coming on for Jorginho in matches and playing the more defensive role when starting the Carabao Cup and Europa League.
