Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he is hoping that Arsenal can finally break their trophy drought and win the league after a decade.

The 26-year-old has won only the FA Cup with the Gunners in 2005 and since gone on to win the La Liga with Barcelona following his departure in 2011 to Nou Camp.

The Spaniard was one of Arsenal's best players following their transfer to the Emirates from Highbury, but a lack of financial backing forced Arsene Wenger to sell his best talents year in year out, something which affected their title credentials.

The Barcelona man came closest to winning the title in 2007-08 when they were five points clear during this period but failed to capitalise on their form after a horrific injury to Eduardo against Birmingham.

Since then the Gunners have been there and thereabouts this season and have a big chance to silence their doubters, as they sit top of the pile, ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City by two points.

"I watch every game of Arsenal's. I am very happy how they are playing, they have a strong squad, they are top of the league. I cannot wait to see if they can lift the trophy finally. It would be amazing, they need to be very consistent between now and the end of the season," Fabregas told the Daily Mail.

The midfielder will get a taste of Premier League action as his side take on the mighty Manchester City at the Etihad in the Champions League in a week's time.

Barcelona are currently leading the League and will be favourites to come out of the fixture as winners with the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar hitting their strides.

"In one season it's impossible to win every single game, you will always lose. Whether it's the League Cup, FA Cup, Champions League, there's so many games. The Premier League is a very tough league. Anyone can beat you. It was a very entertaining game," he concluded.
