After years linking Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona while the midfielder was at Arsenal, the Spaniard returns to the Premier League not in the colours of the Gunners, but with their city rivals Chelsea.

Dubbed as an Arsenal hero when he departed, fans are in relative shock that their former talisman will be playing at Stamford Bridge.

It was too much for some, who even decided to take down a tribute banner for the 27-year-old.

But having found it difficult to break into Barcelona’s first team during his time in Catalonia, have fans forgotten how good a player he can be?

Is it possible he can emulate the same form he had in his Gunner days, and finally lift the Premier League trophy that eluded him during his time at the Emirates?

Here are FIVE REASONS to be excited about Chelsea signing Cesc Fabregas.
