Fantasy Premier League: Cesc Fabregas' side features Arsenal and Tottenham stars


Cesc Fabregas is a Premier League legend.

The Spanish midfielder made his breakthrough at Arsenal in 2003 and emerged into one of the best players in the world during his time at the club.

After a stint with Barcelona, Fabregas returned to the Premier League in 2014 and went on to spend five successful seasons at Chelsea.

Fabregas left the Premier League last year as he joined Monaco.

But he clearly still has a big interest in England's top tier. That's because he has posted his Premier League Fantasy Football team on social media.

FWD: Patrick Bamford


GK: Jed Steer

DEF: Bernardo

MID: Jairo Riedewald

DEF: Oliver Casey


You've got to say, that's a pretty strong side.

Lamptey is one of the best defenders below £5m in the game. Dias offers clean sheet potential with Manchester City while Kurt Zouma has scored three times already and is part of a rapidly improving Chelsea backline.

Son and Salah are both good choices in midfield. Aubameyang is expensive and haven't lived up to his price tag just yet, but his fortunes could chance with Arsenal's fixtures looking more favourable in upcoming weeks.

Elneny is a strange choice as he won't offer much going forward, so we would advise Fabregas improving there.

You can't argue with Fabregas' three strikers. They are all great choices.

The biggest problem for me is Fabregas' bench.

Steer is third choice at Aston Villa so he will never play. Bernardo, Riedewald and Casey are also not first-team regulars. This means if one of his starting lineup can't play for whatever reason, Fabregas will be in trouble.

But it's still a pretty strong team. If Fabregas had more depth it would be very good.
