Cesc Fabregas returns to the Emirates stadium on Sunday and his beloved Arsenal, but the Chelsea man is most likely in for a mixed reception.

Arsène Wenger has asked Gooners to respect their former Captain who spent 8 years at the club.

"I want every player to be respected, and Cesc Fabregas, when he comes to the Emirates on Sunday, to be respected like he deserves."

Fabregas was Wenger's pride and joy from the moment he arrived in 2003 to the day he departed in 2011. Cesc was a typically Wenger-esque player and an extraordinary talent who's skills were crafted alongside the likes of Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. Their advice and influence enabled Fabregas to captain Arsenal at 21-years-old.

However, the past is easily forgotten and many Gooners fans will never forgive him for joining Chelsea, even though it was Arsenal who turned him down first.

Here's what they had to say on Twitter...
