Drinkwater's central-midfield foil during the Foxes' 2015-16 Premier League title-winning season was his usual energetic, tidy self and capped a typically consistent display with a goal from 25 yards to double Chelsea's lead.
The Chelsea victory means the Blues are third in the Premier League, one point behind the two Manchester giants, City and United.
The former Real Madrid forward also called for respect to be shown in a post on his official Twitter account.
Frenchman N'Golo Kante netted the second goal for the Blues in the 50th minutes after being assisted by Antonio Ruediger.
The Belgian global, who scored 16 goals in 36 appearances in the Blues' Premier League title-winning campaign last term, made his first appearance of the new season as a substitute in the 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
"I would look at it [any future offers] and work out the pros and cons", he said.
Back in the heady days of summer 2K16, when transfer fees had about five less zeros than they do now, Arsenal were on the verge of paying £20 million for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy. We've spoken to Alvaro after the game.
"I had an wonderful year here but when I come I try to win and today was important and I am happy to score".
'Thibaut gave me the ball, I had time so I went on a run and shot.
'It is always special to play against my old team, ' he said. "I want to win as much as possible".
It was believed that the Toffees midfielder had undergone a medical with the Premier League champions, however, he has since denied taking one as he was unable to contact the Italian.
