It’s fair to say Cesc Fabregas wound up a few people on Monday night.

The Chelsea midfielder was involved in a number of clashes during the 2-2 draw with Tottenham and has been accused of slapping his opponents in the groin, sparking a tunnel bust-up.

The Daily Mail are also claiming that Eric Dier made a threatening gesture towards Fabregas in the tunnel which left onlookers shocked.

On the pitch, Fabregas was crunched by Erik Lamela in the second-half before the Argentine appeared to stand on his hand. Fabregas went ballistic showing the referee and the assistant in an attempt to get Lamela sent-off.

While Lamela remained on the pitch, Dier surely shouldn’t have for his atrocious tackle on Fabregas late on whilst already on a yellow card.

Of course, as a former Arsenal player, it’s understandable that Fabregas wanted to end Tottenham’s title dreams and his side achieved that by holding them to a draw.

Last month, whilst appearing on Monday Night Football, Fabregas offered his feelings on who he wanted to win the Premier League.

"I don't want Spurs to win it - I want to be honest and clear,” he admitted.

“I would love, for what they've done for the rest of the season, I would love Leicester to win the Premier League.”

Spurs needed three points against Chelsea to cut the gap to Leicester to five points but, despite being 2-0 up at half-time, goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard broke the hearts of the north London club.

And it seems that Spurs are far from over it.

Last night, Fabregas posted the fairly innocuous tweet “Hi” with a picture of him celebrating - no mention of Tottenham.

However, Spurs fans clearly believed that the post was a dig at them and reacted furiously. Check out some of the abusive replies below:

While Fabregas was number one enemy in one-half of London, the other half thoroughly enjoyed his antics. The 28-year-old spent eight seasons at Arsenal before joining Chelsea, via Barcelona.

Although many Gooners were angry with Fabregas’s decision to join their London rivals, they appear to have changed their mind after he helped prevent Spurs from winning the Premier League. Just look at their comments:

And the result could help Arsenal directly. They are now just three points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side with two matches remaining as they hope to finish above their rivals - something they had done every season since 1995.

Fabregas will be hoping for a better season both individual and collectively next campaign. He was accused of under-performing under former manager Jose Mourinho earlier this season but his displays have improved dramatically under caretaker boss Guus Hiddink.
