Cesc Fabregas missed a penalty in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round - his expected final match for the club.

The Spain midfielder is set to join former team-mate Thierry Henry's Monaco in the January transfer window after five years at Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas cut an emotional figure at full-time as Alvaro Morata's double sealed Chelsea's progress to the fourth round, but fans on social media were quick to pay tribute to the former Arsenal and Barcelona player.

Frabergas saw his penalty halted by Luke Steele after Danny Fox had fouled Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

But most of the attention remained focused on Fabregas in his 501st appearance in English football.
