Cesc Fabregas Was Doing Cesc Fabregas Things On His AS Monaco Debut

Cesc Fabregas has got a lot of work to do at AS Monaco but early signs are positive.

Cesc Fabregas, 31, made his AS Monaco debut on Sunday night against Marseille following his transfer from Chelsea.

Thierry Henry wasted no time in playing him, starting the Spaniard in midfield and while he started a little shaky, he grew into the game being creative as ever, threading beautiful passes in the attacking third.

His new side went behind in the 13th minute. Marseille's Maxime Lopez fired the hosts in front from long range.

Youri Tieleman then leveled seven minutes before the break to secure a point for AS Monaco.
