Chelsea should have taken the lead in the first half when Davide Zappacosta's inviting cross found Morata unmarked six yards from goal, but his header lacked any conviction and was saved by Steele.

"Out with the old, in with the new" was how David Luiz saw Cesc Fabregas's final game, in which Callum Hudson-Odoi played a starring role.

Cesc Fabregas believes his technical quality has never abated even if he has begun to lose "sharpness", with the midfielder expected to leave Chelsea for Monaco.

Cesc Fabregas missed a penalty in what reports are claiming to be his final game in English football.

"He has got everything to make it in world football", the Spaniard added.

Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas on Saturday, January 5, played what was potentially his last match in a Blues' jersey against Championship side, Nottingham Forest.

Chelsea fans will be used to seeing Ethan Ampadu playing in defence but for Wales the teenager has often featured in midfield.

And despite his match winning heroics, Twitter chose to focus on his blatant miss and trolled the 26 year old forward mercilessly. He's certainly no Kante yet, but the Welshman may just have shown Sarri he can be an adequate back up. Would the American winger's arrival block the pathway for Hudson-Odoi, who might see a big-money move to Bayern Munich as a quicker route to the top?

Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after going off injured against Nottingham Forest.

He scored two goals, both after assists from Hudson-Odoi, and he hardly celebrated them.

Morata has constantly been linked with a move away from Chelsea in the last few weeks and his attitude today was of a man who wants to leave the club.

"The occasion got the better of me", Fabregas told BBC Sport.
