Chelsea fans are hoping Fabregas stays in first team ahead of Bakayoko

Chelsea are back to winning ways in the English Premier League after comfortably overcoming West Bromwich Albion on Monday at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues ran out 3-0 winners thanks an Eden Hazard double and a Victor Moses effort, moving up into fourth place ahead of London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

While fans were predictably in awe of the superb hazard, another star caught their eye after replacing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who was suspended.

Cesc Fabregas started his 17th top-flight match of the season and shone in the middle of the park for Antonio Conte’s side, dictating play and forming an effective partnership with N’Golo Kante.

Supporters are now calling on the Spaniard to permanently replace Bakayoko going forward after a series of ineffective performances from last summer’s signing.

While they both offer different things to the Chelsea team, Fabregas’ creativity and experience could help the Blues out massively in the closing stages of the season as they look to ensure a top four finish.

Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Conte’s selection dilemma…
