In April, Arsenal welcomed arch rivals Chelsea as well as former captain Cesc Fabregas to the Emirates.

The match which ended in a goalless draw however, pushed the Blues even closer to the League title, with Fabregas describing the result as a good one for his new club.

The Blues has since gone on to clinch the League title but many Arsenal fans have been waiting to hear how their former hero felt upon his first visit to the Emirates Stadium since leaving the club in 2011 for his boyhood club Barcelona.

In an interview with Sport Magazine per Daily Star, Fabregas said: “There was some [boos] at the beginning, but at the end of the game when I came off it was very nice.”

“So that’s what I take from it. I just tried to take it as a normal day and play my game.

“It is difficult because obviously I know that I played there for many years.

“I know the pitch and the memories do come back to you, but you have to be professional and get the three points for your team.

“Well, that’s what I hoped for. As it turned out, the [0-0] draw was a very good result for us.”

Having said this, do you think Fabregas misses Arsenal so much?
