Captain Cesc Fabregas Scores Twice
Fabregas celebrates his goal
Arsenal Captain Cesc Fabregas scored his second goal of 2008/2009 season in an English Premier League match last Sunday (4/26).
Cesc Fabregas trebled his goal tally for the season as Arsenal prepared for Old Trafford in fine style with a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough on Sunday. The Spaniard had just one strike to his name before Gareth Southgate’s side arrived at Emirates Stadium this afternoon.
However Fabregas plundered goals from Andrey Arshavin's cut-back in the 26th minute and Emmanuel Eboue’s incisive ball midway through the second half to give his side a straightforward victory against a relegation-haunted side.
The latter effort ended both the game as a contest and the Arsenal captain’s participation this afternoon. Before the game could kick-off again, Wenger withdrew Fabregas and Theo Walcott.
It was clearly a move made with Wednesday’s Champions League Semi-Final first leg at Manchester United in mind.
