Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas continued his great run of form on Sunday when he faced his former club Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

The Spain international was on books of the North London club from 2003 until 2011, when he left to return to Barcelona.

After three years at the Spanish giants, Fabregas came back to the Premier League in the summer transfer window and moved to Chelsea.

The 27-year-old needed no time whatsoever to settle back into the English top flight and once again rose to the occasion in the London derby against Arsenal on Sunday.

As the stats above show, Fabregas had a very good game against the Gunners. His ball for Diego Costa’s second goal on 78 minutes was exquisite and showed his passing range.

Despite not always marching forward, the Spaniard still made 18 final third entries and also ended up with 88.5% pass accuracy.

Overall, Fabregas had a very good match for Chelsea and was a central figure in their 2-0 victory over Arsenal.
