  • Sarri En mi opinión Cesc debe irse

Fabregas, often considered to be one of the best midfielders to grace the Premier League since the turn of the century, captained Chelsea in his 501st and final game in English football as they beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup.

Hudson-Odoi might have scored, too, forcing two saves from Luke Steele in the second half after jinking dribbles into the Forest penalty area.

Fabregas' afternoon ended in the 85th minute when he was replaced by Kante, leaving the pitch to a rousing ovation from the home supporters.

As the 31-year-old heads to Monaco to link up with former Arsenal team-mate Theirry Henry in the principality club's bid to avoid relegation, he could be followed out the door by a handful of other Chelsea players.

"To you and your wonderful family, thank you for helping us in every way possible".

'If I'm Hudson-Odoi, go and pursue your career at Bayern Munich, ' Jermaine Jenas told the BBC in a week when Chelsea completed a £58million deal with Dortmund to sign Christian Pulisic.

"It's really sad for us. We deserved the win". 'If a young player is good, his age does not matter to me, ' said Kovac when asked about Hudson-Odoi. It has been a pleasure playing with him, whatever move he chooses to make.

"Sad for everybody when you lose this kind of player, this kind of person, but I think everybody has to stand up and clap the hands for him because he deserves it".

So far in the 2018-19 campaign, Hudson-Odoi has featured seven times for Maurizio Sarri's side across all competitions, scoring one goal and setting up three more.

"It's always hard to lose players, especially like him, because he's a world-class player".

'We have a duty to change the team and especially rejuvenate it.

Hudson-Odoi became the first teenager to provide two assists in a match for Chelsea since 2007 when the provider was Scott Sinclair, who moved on to play for 11 clubs in as many years. He is a talented player and may be able to thrive in another environment but the Blues need a striker who can score at least 20 goals a season.
