Cesc Fabregas scores first goal in Monaco win

Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas scored his first goal for Monaco as the Ligue 1 strugglers recorded their first win since the sacking of Thierry Henry.

Fabregas lashed home a loose ball just after the hour mark to lift the hosts to within a point of safety.

Aleksandr Golovin had given Monaco the lead with a smart finish from Gelson Martins' pass.

Christopher Jullien headed Toulouse level five minutes later, but Fabregas' goal proved to be the winner.

Fabregas joined Monaco on a three-and-a-half-year contract on 11 January, when his former Arsenal team-mate Henry was still in charge.
