Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is finally a Premier League winner. The Spain international midfielder won the league title with Chelsea on Sunday.
Fabregas made his name at Arsenal, but he could never win the championship with the Gunners. Now in his first season at Stamford Bridge, he has won it in style.
The 27-year-old, who left Arsenal for Spanish giants Barcelona in 2011, moved to Chelsea in the summer of 2014 and was an instant hit for the Blues.
Although Fabregas’s form dipped in the final weeks of the campaign, his performances in midfield in the first half of the season were indisputably integral to Chelsea’s Premier League title triumph.
The Spaniard has scored three goals and created 90 chances in 32 Premier League appearances, while having a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 58%.
It must be great for Fabregas to finally win the Premier League after years of trying and failing to do so with Arsenal.
Following the 2010 World Cup winner’s triumph on Sunday, Arsenal fans took to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction.
Below are the best reactions.
