Everyone is a bit rusty during pre-season training.
That’ll be the excuse Cesc Fabregas uses after being left looking silly by Bayern Munich’s record signing Corentin Tolisso in Chelsea’s 3-2 pre-season loss.
Tolisso recieved the ball with his back to play and N’Golo Kante looking to steal the ball off him.
Not a position any midfielder wants to find themselves in.
His fate looked sealed when Fabregas came steaming in from deep to put a proper pre-season reducer on the French midfielder.
But with a dip of the hips and a swivel Tolisso left Kante and Fabregas for dead.
To make matters worse Fabregas ended up putting a tackle in on Kante while Tolisso carried the ball forward to start a Bayern attack.
Stick to wonderful passes Cesc and leave the tackling to N’Golo.
