Cesc Fabregas has revealed his delight at seeing Arsenal challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The Gunners are currently second in the Premier League table and a point behind leaders Chelsea, despite their 5-1 drubbing at Liverpool on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger knows everything about me and he’s the person that I owe nearly everything

Arsenal have not won a major trophy since their FA Cup triumph back in 2005, when Fabregas was still at the club.

And the 26-year-old, who returned to Barcelona in the summer of 2011 following an eight-year spell in north London, remains full of admiration for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

“I prefer not to talk too much about Arsenal because they are doing very well now,” said Fabregas. “All I can say are amazing words for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.

“The most important figure to me was Arsene Wenger. I have to be grateful all my life to him and that’s it.

“For me he is the most important person, he knows everything about me and he’s the person that I owe nearly everything.”

The Spaniard continued: “They are doing very well and I am very happy for them. I just wish them the very best.

“He [Mesut Ozil] is a good player. He’s a very good assisting player, so he is one of the reasons [that Arsenal are challenging].”
