The Spanish international joined the club over the summer in a £30m deal from La Liga giants Barcelona.
And the former Arsenal captain has been exceptional for Chelsea on his return to the Premier League and has played a major role in their success so far.
But he has, however, revealed his shock at signing for the Blues, admitting that he never saw it coming.
“I never imagined I could end up at Chelsea a few months ago, especially bearing in mind my past at Arsenal,” he said.
“But you can never rule out anything in football.”
Fabregas also stressed the importance of the role Jose Mourinho played in his summer switch.
“I had no trouble making a decision after I had opted to leave Barcelona. I had to be selfish and look at the best option for myself,” he added.
“I spoke with Mourinho and I had made my decision within 10 minutes. He convinced me to join Chelsea.”
