Cesc Fabregas may have missed out on a place in the PFA Team of the Year, but he has not really been forgotten by football fans around the world. Mobile Phones Direct has compiled a Twitter dream team featuring players who have been most talked about on twitter. Fabregas is the only Chelsea player to feature in the team even though the likes of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have had some moments during the season as well.
Fabregas’ popularity on Twitter may largely be down to his Arsenal connections with supporters of both clubs tweeting about him.
As a club, Chelsea may be lagging behind the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid in terms of likes on Facebook, but the blues are extremely popular on Twitter. After having held the post as the most followed club on Twitter, Chelsea were recently overtaken by Arsenal. As of now, Arsenal have 5.8 million followers compared to Chelsea’s 5.6 million followers. Another title would surely tilt the favour in terms of the blues.
