Cesc Fabregas may divide opinion among a number of Arsenal fans, but he certainly isn’t our favourite player anymore. It doesn’t look like he’s hugely popular at Chelsea either, with his midfield partner Nemanja Matic deciding the Spaniard deserved a punch in the face.
The former Barcelona star was celebrating with international teammate Diego Costa after one of his two goals against Swansea, when the giant Serbian trotted over and hit him square in the nose.
The tough tackling midfielder apologised immediately, and appeared to intimate that the jab was an innocent mistake. Could it have been premeditated though? It does look like the former Benfica star intentionally makes a fist before connecting. Wishful thinking perhaps…
