Speaking ahead of the Premier League clash against leaders Chelsea, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he still regrets letting Cesc Fabregas leave the club for Barcelona some four years back.

After enjoying three very successful seasons with Barcelona, Fabregas returned to English Premier League to sign for Chelsea, and he looks set to lift the league title in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal paid £42.5M for Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil on September 2013, but the 25-year-old has still struggled for performances in the big games during his time in London.

While many Arsenal fans backed Arsene Wenger’s decision not to re-sign Cesc Fabregas this summer, the Spaniard’s impressive performances for Chelsea are enough to suggest the Professor has made a big mistake.

With Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain vying for positions in the centre of the park, Wenger clearly didn’t want to hinder their progress by signing Fabregas, but his decision could cost the team dearly this season.

While none of his star midfielders managed more than an assist in the first seven Premier League fixtures, the Spaniard has created exactly seven goals for his teammates, which is the same number the entire Arsenal team, counting defenders and attackers as well.
