Guardiola’s Manchester City went up against Fabregas’s Chelsea in a heavyweight Premier League clash this afternoon, with the side from London laying down a real marker of their intentions for the season.
The Blues ran out comfortable 3-1 winners, with the victory securing their eighth consecutive win in the Premier League and sending Guardiola back to the drawing board.
Before the match, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte sprung a surprise by picking Fabregas at the heart of his midfield, with the Spaniard starting his first game since September 26.
He played well and definitely played his part in the victory but he was left looking rather foolish after Pep left him hanging at full-time:
Excellent ce Pep Guardiola symbole du fair play et du pacifisme qui refuse de saluer Fabregas ! pic.twitter.com/S8lXiQkoay

Was it something to do with Fabregas’s little spat that saw Fernandinho sent off? Or does Guardiola’s anger stem from their days at Barcelona together?
