'It was unexpected' - Cesc speaks on playing for Chelsea instead of Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas produced a man-of-the-match performance on his Premier League debut for Chelsea.

Spanish sensation Cesc Fabregas produced a stunning performance for Chelsea as they defeated Burnley 3-1.

The highlight was his perfectly weighted assist for Andre Schurrle on 21 minutes with the game level.

After the game, Cesc was asked what it was like to be back in the Premier League but in a Chelsea shirt, and responded:

"Being at Chelsea is probably something I would never have expected but football is unexpected. I'm very happy."

The midfielder appeared to have settled straight in for the Blues, form which he hinted at in pre-season for the club.

Costing £27 million from Barcelona, he was billed as the signing of the season by many a pundit before the weekend began, and one game in for each side, that prediction looks a shrewd one.

Arsenal elected against bringing back the former Barcelona man, and while they have Aaron Ramsey in outstanding form, it's hard to wonder what their side would be like if they had decided to re-sign their former skipper.
