Cesc Fabregas scored his first goal for Chelsea in their friendly victory over Vitesse Arnhem on Wednesday.

Two of Vitesse's starting line-up, Wallace and Bertrand Traore, are on loan from Chelsea, who frequently send players to the Dutch club.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech (Beeney 80); Azpilicueta, Cahill (Zouma 78), Ivanovic (Chalobah 80), Luis; Van Ginkel (Romeu 66), Matic (Boga 78); Salah (Ake 71), Fabregas (Baker 75), Torres; Costa (Solanke 78).
