Cesc Fabregas misses penalty on Chelsea farewell ahead of Monaco transfer

Cesc Fabregas’s Chelsea farewell script didn’t go quite to plan on Saturday after he missed a first half penalty.

The former Arsenal captain, who has won two Premier League titles and an FA Cup following his move to Stamford Bridge in 2014, is set to complete a transfer to Monaco to work under his former Gunners teammate Thierry Henry.

Fabregas wore the captain’s armband as Maurizio Sarri fielded a much-changed line-up for the visit of Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup.

The 31-year-old was presented with the perfect opportunity to wave goodbye with a goal after Ruben Loftus-Cheek was upended in the box in the 36th minute.

With first choice penalty taker Eden Hazard on the bench, Fabregas accepted the responsibility but his stuttering run-up failed to fool Forest goalkeeper Luke Steele, who plunged to his right to turn the ball behind for a corner.

Hazard, meanwhile, was introduced to the fray six minutes later after Loftus-Cheek suffered an injury.
