The Spanish playmaker was offered a return to the Emirates Stadium, only for Arsene Wenger to turn him down due to the presence of other creative midfield players such as record signing Mesut Ozil.
However, Fabregas instead moved to Chelsea and has looked absolutely superb for the Premier League leaders so far, with this stat summing it all up:
9 – Cesc Fabregas now has as many assists this season as Mesut Ozil managed in the whole of last season. Orchestration.

Cheaper than Ozil and clearly more effective, this looks like a decision that will go on to haunt Wenger and Arsenal!
