Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas has reacted to the officiating of the match between the Premier clash Chelsea and Tottenham in the London derby on Sunday evening.

Fabregas believed the first goal against Chelsea should not have stood, he is of the view that there was a foul in the build-up before Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s equalised for Tottenham in the 68th minute of the encounter at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas said that there were two infringements from Tottenham in the build-up to the first goal against Chelsea in the London derby.

The Dane hit the ball with a perfect strike beyond the reach of Edouardo Mendy from outside the Chelsea box with his right foot.

Fabregas, though, has said that the goal should not have stood as he believes that in the build-up to the goal, Tottenham’s Rodrigo Bentancur committed a foul on Chelsea’s Kai Havertz.

The Spanish midfielder also hinted that Richarlison was in an offside position when Højbjerg took the shot that led to Tottenham’s opener.

However, if you look at the replays, you will notice that Bentancur did get the ball and as per Richarlison, the Brazilian forward did not affect the play, and he did not seem to block the view of Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy either.
