Video: Cesc Fabregas proves his Arsenal loyalty with anti-Tottenham jibe on MNF

Cesc Fabregas proved he is still an Arsenal fan at heart when quizzed on Tottenham's Premier League title credentials.

The Chelsea midfielder joined Jamie Carragher as the guest pundit on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme as Tottenham travelled to the Britannia in hope of sustaining their title push.

The former Arsenal captain covered a range of topics as Fabregas joined Carragher and Ed Chamberlain in previewing Monday night's clash, as well as casting an eye over the weekend's biggest talking points.

When asked whether he thought Leicester City would hang on to their lead and lift the Premier League trophy, Fabregas said he did, but not necessarily for the reasons you would expect.

"I think Leicester will win it," said Fabregas.

When Ed Chamberlain pushed the 28-year-old on whether Tottenham were capable of catching the runaway leaders, Fabregas' reply was met with laughter in the studio.

"Hopefully not, I don't want Spurs to win it! I have to be honest."

Fabregas spent more than eight years at Arsenal, scoring 35 times in 212 appearances for the club.

The former Emirates favourite was rumoured to be keen on a return to Arsenal after leaving Barcelona in 2014 but ended up signing for Jose Mourinho's Chelsea in a £25 million move.

Cesc Fabregas had to refute allegation he had been instrumental in Jose Mourinho's departure from Stamford Bridge and the World Cup winner used his television appearance to re-iterate his fondness for his former manager.

"A lot has been said [since Mourinho left] but I love Jose.

"I consider him a friend and we still keep in touch now. Some of the things said were unfortunate, but I still have huge respect."

Fabregas was a pivotal player in Chelsea's title winning season last year, and the former Barcelona player admits Mourinho was let down by the players.

"I think Jose's problem was that he trusted us too much. He gave us more holiday because we were champions, and we let him down: the whole team."

Despite Chelsea's disappointing season, Fabregas said he was confident Chelsea would benefit from the arrival of new manager Antonio Conte.

"I've been studying his previous teams to see what he does and it's interesting because you can see he loves offensive football and his teams are so well-organised.

"He is a winner and a competitor and that's what we need: someone to push us and motivate us.

"He wants to win and win and we will have to be prepared for that."
