Summer deal

Fabregas completed his transfer from Barcelona to Chelsea earlier this summer for a fee of £27 million and, after only two competitive fixtures for the west London club, he is already looking a relative snip at that price.

The former Arsenal captain performed to distinction in the opening victory over Burnley, during which he provided two assists, and although he was unable to repeat this in the defeat of Leicester, Fabregas made a contribution of note.

Arsene Wenger’s decision not to sign Fabregas will become ever more unfathomable with each supreme display, and Mourinho will be content indeed that he was able to take advantage of the situation.

Mourinho delight

“We knew Fabregas was an important player from the moment we tried to buy him,” said Mourinho.

“Cesc has been important for us, everybody knows how good he is, he was already good as a kid, he disappeared from us for three years but he’s back at a fantastic age so I think we enjoy him and he enjoys playing in the Premier League.”

Meanwhile, Diego Costa scored his second goal in as many games for Chelsea during the 2-0 win over Leicester at Stamford Bridge, with Eden Hazard also on target.
