Cesc Fabregas may be a World Cup winner, two-time victor in the European Championships, while also counting a Liga title among his collection, but the former Arsenal captain has identified scoring against Tottenham as one moment he will never forget.

Having spent eight seasons as an Arsenal player, Fabregas became well attuned to the intense rivalry that exists in north London, and found nothing more satisfying than condemning Spurs to defeat.

The Spain international played for Arsenal against Spurs on eight occasions before he was able to find the net against them, doing so with a screamer in a 3-1 victory at White Hart Lane in September 2007.

Fabregas was able to do so again two seasons later, this time at the Emirates Stadium, with a fabulous solo goal immediately after Robin van Persie had given Arsenal the lead sending the home support delirious.

And both goals against Spurs are special moments that Fabregas will forever hold fondly.

When asked in a Barcelona Facebook Q&A for a moment he will 'never forget', Fabregas responded: "Scoring against Spurs."
