Kante and Fabregas combination battered on social media

Chelsea's midfield combination of N'Golo Kante and Cesc Fabregas has been trolled on social media by fans after the pair were ripped apart by a dominant Bayern Munich engine room of Corentin Tolisso and Renato Sanches.

Bayern Munich may consider altering their plans regarding Renato Sanches after his performance against the Premier League champions.

The 19-year-old has been offered out on loan and AC Milan appear to willing takers for a player who has lost his way after joining from Benfica just over a year ago.

But alongside summer signing Corentin Tolisso in Bayern’s engine room, Sanches ran riot against Cesc Fabregas and N’Golo Kante, particularly in the first half. Fabregas operated in a deeper role, which left Kante exposed as the France international was caught chasing shadows as Bayern zipped the ball around.

The pairing simply wasn’t enough to ensure that Chelsea were defensively sound, while Fabregas’ creative output was severely restricted as he was often forced to play his passes from inside his own half direct towards the attacking trio.

Fans took to Twitter after the encounter and couldn't help but take a dig at the last term's PFA award winner.
