Obvious statement of the Premier League season coming up: Cesc Fabregas is a world-class and game changing signing for Chelsea.
Arsene Wenger stunned the footballing world when he opted not to bring back the former Arsenal midfielder from Barcelona when it was clear he was surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp.
Fabregas, who was open to a return to North London, then decided that he’d commit one of the deadliest of sins – to Arsenal fans anyway – and rocked up in West London with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.
It didn’t take long for Arsenal fans to realise they’d let a world-class footballer slip through their fingers, as they reacted as you’d expect after the Spaniard’s wonderful assist for Andre Schurrle’s goal against Burnley.

There's nothing strange about Fabregas playing for Chelsea. He left Arsenal a long time ago and he's absolutely forgotten. Get over it.

Happily for me, I never really felt that love for Fabregas that some Arsenal fans did. No one will ever replace Henry.

Watching Cesc Fabregas play for Chelsea is like watching your wife sleep with another man.
