The Frenchman, on loan from New York Red Bulls, returned to North London to score the winner in the 1-0 FA Cup third round win over Leeds United in the first match of his two-month loan and former teammate Fabregas was not surprised at the showing of the veteran.

"Just seen Thierry's goal last night. Only he could have done something like that... Special players for special moments. Fantastic!" he posted on Twitter.
