Chelsea cruised to a 4-0 win over PAOK in the Europa League group stages on Thursday night – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter went wild about Cesc Fabregas for his performance.

The Blues had already secured a place in the knockout rounds of the European competition and made sure of top spot with a routine win, which always looked on the cards when Yevhen Khacheridi was shown a straight red card in the seventh minute.

Olivier Giroud scored two brilliant first-half goals with his favoured left foot, the second a volley which he smashed in after a perfectly weighted through ball from Fabregas.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Alvaro Mora then scored in the second period for the hosts, which capped off a professional display at Stamford Bridge by the fringe players.

Chelsea managed to bounce back from their disappointing defeat at Tottenham with a strong European display and now turn their attention to Sunday against Fulham.

A selection of Chelsea fans on social media singled out Fabregas for his individual display and believe he was one of the outstanding players on show.

The 31-year-old central midfielder dictated the game from a deep-lying position and reminded everyone of why he’s been a serial winner in his career.

He is currently stuck behind Jorginho in the pecking order, but has turned in some impressive displays in Europe.

Here are some of the Chelsea fan tweets on Fabregas’ performance:
