Fabregas fires Chelsea six points clear

Cesc Fabregas coolly finishes to give Chelsea their 10th straight win

Chelsea moved six points clear at the top of the Premier League as Cesc Fabregas’ first-half goal beat a stubborn Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Fabregas steered into the far corner from the edge of the box as the Blues recorded a 10th consecutive league victory.

Sunderland keeper Jordan Pickford saved from former Black Cat Marcos Alonso and Willian to prevent the visitors from winning by a bigger margin.

The hosts, who had set up to try and nullify their opponent’s attacking strength, had few chances although they could have snatched a point in injury time but Thibaut Courtois superbly denied Patrick van Aanholt.

It was a hard-fought and important win for the league leaders after second-pace Arsenal slipped up against Everton on Tuesday and puts Antonio Conte’s side in a strong position to end the year at the top of the table.
