Former Arsenal captain Fabregas, who spent eight years in the Premier League, came off the bench at half-time and missed a glorious chance to snatch a draw late on. "At the end of the day, you want teams to have a go at you and test you and see what happens," the midfielder said.

"We knew, especially after we saw the first XI that they put in, that they were going to defend basically the whole game."
