CESC FABREGAS has vehemently denied suggestions he deliberately tried to win a penalty in Chelsea's draw against Arsenal.

The Spaniard, 27, appeared to take a tumble over a weak challenge from Santi Cazorla in the 22nd minute of the 0-0 draw at the Emirates.

Referee Michael Olivier waved away the Blues' appeal for a spot-kick and booked Fabregas for simulation.

When pressed on the incident after the game, Fabregas pleaded his innocence and claimed that his fellow countryman fouled him.

"He [Santi Cazorla] definitely touched me," he said.

"I don't know if I could have stood up more but he touched me and that's why I fell.

"The referee told me he would look at it after and learn from it."
