Emmanuel Adebayor hailed the performance of Cesc Fabregas in Arsenal's 4-0 romp over Porto on Tuesday night.

"Cesc played well, he kept the ball as normal. Fabregas always plays well - he is a very good footballer," he said.

"Don't get me wrong, he's a human being like everyone so sometimes everything get difficult.

"But he is always there to show character, he is 21 and has got a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and he is dealing with that quite well."
