David Luiz makes HUGE Cesc Fabregas claim as midfielder set for transfer

Fabregas' contract is set to expire at the end of the season and he has chose to leave the club this month in search for a new challenge.

Morata was guilty of missing a huge chance when heading Zappacosta's delightful cross right at Luke Steele, with plenty of the goal to aim for either side of Forest's back-up keeper.

Morata was put through on goal and was then appeared to be caught by Forest midfielder Claudio Jacob.

When Loftus-Cheek was hacked down by Danny Fox on the half-hour mark, the moment looked made for Fabregas, but his staggered run-up to the penalty failed to fool Steele, who dived down to his right to push the ball around the post.

The Blues had Alvaro Morata to thank for their victory as the Spanish striker scored twice in the second half, both from Callum Hudson-Odoi crosses, having also squandered two glorious opportunities.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard praised Cesc Fabregas for giving "everything" to the club amid reports the midfielder is set to join Monaco.

Morata was unable to complete his hat-trick as he was taken off after 74 minutes for Cesar Azpilicueta, although his reaction was not a happy one as he went straight down the tunnel.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, he's won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one League Cup.

Although Sarri has expressed a desire to keep Fabregas, it's thought his move to the Ligue 1 side will be finalised soon - possibly ahead of Chelsea's League Cup game away at Tottenham in midweek.

What does it mean?

Monaco are offering Chelsea €10million for the 31-year-old, as per the report, and manager Thierry Henry wants to sign his former Arsenal teammate on a five-year deal.
