The Spain international joined Arsene Wenger in Arsenal in 2003 and spent 8 years, becoming captain departing for boyhood side Barcelona.
He got back to England with Chelsea in 2014 and finally got his hands on a Premier League title in his debut season at Stamford Bridge, winning another two years later.
According to Livescore, Fabregas bows out after 350 appearances, starting on 295 occasions and playing 26,372 minutes.
A sizeable chunk of Fabregas’ Premier League appearances came as a teenager. Only Wayne Rooney (105) made more before his 20th birthday.
Fabregas’ half-century of goals has him joint-fourth for Spanish players in the Premier League. Fernando Torres (85), David Silva (54) and Diego Costa (52) have more than Fabregas and Juan Mata.
Fabregas is the fourth youngest goalscorer in Premier League history. His maiden strike against Blackburn Rovers in August 2004 came at the age of 17. James Vaughan, James Milner and Rooney (all 16) have hit the net at a younger age.
Fabregas’ career-best Premier League season for goals came in 2009-10. As well as hitting the net 15 times, he provided 13 assists in a campaign that ended with a World Cup triumph in South Africa.
The number of assists the Spaniard has tallied in the Premier League. Only Ryan Giggs (162) has managed more.
The midfielder’s best season for assists came in 2014-15. In Premier League history, only Thierry Henry (20 in 2002-03) and Mesut Ozil (19 in 2015-16) have bettered his 18 in a single campaign. That tally is matched by Kevin de Bruyne and Frank Lampard.
