Premier League legend Cesc Fabregas has shown his preference for Arsenal at the expense of Chelsea after he shared his fantasy football team earlier this month. Cesc Fabregas enjoyed a fantastic Premier League career in the colours of both Arsenal and Chelsea before he left the Blues to join French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco.
In his fantasy football team, Cesc Fabregas included two Arsenal players, while Chelsea had just one representative. The Spanish international has the Arsenal duo of Egyptian midfielder Mohamed ElNeny and Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in his fantasy team, while French international Kurt Zouma was the only Chelsea player in the team.
His ties with both Arsenal and Chelsea didn’t stop him from picking the Tottenham Hotspur duo of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son. The other players in his team include Liverpool shot stopper Alisson Becker, Brighton and Hove Albion defender Tariq Lamptey, new Manchester City centre back Ruben Dias and Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford.
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah completes his starting XI. The four substitutes on his bench are Aston Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer, Leeds United defender Olivier Casey, Brighton and Hove Albion fullback Bernardo and Crystal Palace utility player Jairo Riedewald.
Cesc Fabregas started his career at five-time European Champions Barcelona before North London giants Arsenal convinced the player to leave the Nou Camp for Premier League football as a teenager. The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner went on to captain the Gunners before he asked for a return to Barcelona in 2011. He scored 35 Premier League goals for Arsenal in 212 appearances over his eight-year stay in North London.
The 110-cap Spanish international spent three years on his return to Barcelona before heading back to Premier League football. He signed for Chelsea in 2014 for a reported fee of around £32m.
