Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told the Daily Mail that it will be "amazing" if Arsenal can finally end their nine-year trophy drought and win the Premier League this season.
The Spain international revealed that he still keeps a close eye on his former club, and is hoping that they'll get the better of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City in the race for the domestic crown in 2013/14.
"I watch every game of Arsenal's," he told Sportsmail. "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."
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be hoping his side can maintain their impressive run of form, which sees Arsenal sitting top of the table on 55 points after 24 games, two points clear of Manchester City and Chelsea.
Fabregas opted to leave the Emirates Stadium in favour of a return to Camp Nou in the summer of 2011, where he has gone on to win La Liga and the Copa del Rey, justifying his decision to re-sign for his boyhood club, Barcelona.
