Arsenal fans would have been somewhat sceptical going into their Premier League game with Chelsea.

The Gunners had only won three of the previous 18 meetings between the two sides in all competitions, and historically, it's been a high-tempo game with a fiery atmosphere, mainly down to the personal rivalry between Arsene Wenger and now Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho.

Of course, the north London club would have been hoping for the three points today, but the game was made even more crucial for the fans to win when they realised former player Cesc Fabregas had been named in the Blues' starting lineup.

The Spaniard spent eight years at the club before leaving to join his former club Barcelona and Arsenal fans will never forgive him for returning to the Premier League, only to join bitter London rivals Chelsea.

It's not only the fans that feel let down by their former player but it appears that the club's official social media account were also far from impressed of seeing the ex-Gooner back in their own territory.

Snapchat has become one of the most popular social media tools over the past couple of years, with users able to take photos and send them individually to friends, or put them as part of their 'story' for everyone to see.

And recently, professional footballers, celebrities and even football clubs have jumped on the Snapchat bandwagon, giving their fans exclusive behind-the-scenes access to what is going on in their lives or at the club.

Arsenal's official Snapchat account decided to go full savage mode when they spotted Fabregas, uploading this picture to their story:

And during the game, Fabregas was booed every time he touched the ball. The fans saved their biggest jeers for when he was substituted just ten minutes into the second half.

Not a happy return for Cesc.
