During an eight-year stint with Arsenal, Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas established himself as a firm fans favourite in North London.

The 26-year-old - who was linked with a sensational £25 million move to Manchester United during the last transfer window - became one of the world's top midfield talents during his spell under the tutelage of the legendary Arsene Wenger before moving to boyhood idols Barcelona in 2011.

This week, in a well-received question and answer session with fans on Facebook, Fabregas has been speaking on a range of different topics. 

Among those topics discussed was the subject of Fabregas' favourite career goal. Given that he has now represented the Catalan giants for two seasons and has also won 86 senior international caps, the chances of such a goal coming during his formative years at Arsenal may have appeared remote.

However, much to Gunners fans' delight, Fabregas has indeed claimed that his best goal came while he was representing Arsenal.

The strike in question came in the intimidating surrounds of the San Siro during a Champions League last 16 second-leg clash against AC Milan back in 2008.

With Arsenal trailing 1-0 with just minutes remaining, Fabregas sparked delirium amongst the visiting fans by breaking forward in possession before launching an arrowed strike from 30 yards that nestled wonderfully in the bottom corner.

"The greatest moment of my career was when we won the World Cup and all of the trophies I've won with Barca.

"[But my best goal] was against Milan, at the San Siro, for Arsenal," the player himself was quoted by the Daily Star.
