Cesc Fabregas' assist for Mario Gaspar's brilliant goal against England was lovely

Oh, there you are Cesc Fabregas. We've missed you.

The Spanish midfielder has had something of a 'disappointing' season so far, and by disappointing we mean catastrophically bad.

He's been held up as a poster boy for Chelsea's failing Premier League title defence having registered just a single assist this term after notching a league-leading 18 last time round. But last night the former Arsenal and Barcelona man showed he'd lost none of his magic. Even if it was against England.

Spain strolled to a comfortable 2-0 victory against the Three Lions - their first loss in 16 games - last night, and Mario Gaspar's bicycle kick that broke the deadlock after 72 minutes was the highlight of the evening.

Fabregas played his part in the 24-year-old's superb goal, teeing him up with a superb pass for the assist, which you can see in the video below.

Chelsea fans will hope this is the beginning of a resurgence for the midfielder, who also earned plaudits for his all-round display, ahead of the Premier League's return after the international break.

The Blues have already lost seven games in the league and are down in 16th, 15 points off current league leaders Manchester City.

Manager Jose Mourinho's job is believed to be in danger, however the BBC's David Ornstein reported last week that owner Roman Abramovich planned to stand by the Special One for now.

Do you think Cesc Fabregas has a future at Chelsea?
