Look away Arsenal fans – Cesc Fabregas has opened his Chelsea scoring account.

The Blues’ pre-season took them to the Netherlands last night, for a friendly against Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring early in the first half before a free-kick was awarded in the 24th minute and Fabregas made no hesitation scoring with a lovely right-footed curling strike into the top corner.

Chelsea fans will be hoping it is the first of many for the Spanish star.

They went on to win the match comfortably, final score 3-1.
