Fabregas scores in Monaco’s first win in seven league games

Intro

Cesc Fabregas netted his first goal with Monaco to give the struggling principality side their first Ligue 1 win in seven games as they beat visiting Toulouse 2-1 on Saturday.

The Spanish midfielder, who joined from Chelsea last month, fired home in the second half.

The goal helped Monaco move from 19th to 18th in the standings and claim their first victory at home in the league.

They have 18 points from 23 games and are level on points with 17th-placed Caen who have a game in hand.

In coach Leonardo Jardim’s second game since he returned to the bench after Thierry Henry was sacked last week, Monaco showed some steel.
