Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas looks calm ahead of facing his former club Arsenal in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Chelsea players have arrived at Stamford Bridge ahead of their Premier League clash against Arsenal this afternoon.

The Blues will host the Gunners in the London derby which promises to be hugely successful.

This will be the first time that Cesc Fabregas will face Arsenal since leaving the North London club in the summer of 2011.

The Spain international was on the books of Arsenal from 2003 until 2011, when he left the Emirates Stadium to return to Barcelona.

However, after three years in the Catalan capital, the 27-year-old is back in England, this time at Chelsea.

Fabregas has been one of the best players in the Premier League so far this season and will be key in the Blues’ quest to beat Arsenal and maintain their unbeaten run in the league.

However, Arsenal have a point to prove at the Bridge today, and one can be certain that Arsene Wenger’s players will give their all to pick up the three points.
