Chelsea v Forest confirmed lineups: Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi both START!

'He's ready to perform' - Howard backs Pulisic to succeed at Chelsea

Following some good wing play from Bayern Munich target Hudson-Odoi, Morata got between the two Forest centre-backs and converted the youngster's cross, leaving Steele with no chance of keeping this one out.

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

The game was put out of Forest's reach an hour into the match thanks to a second for Morata who, moments after guiding Ross Barkley's cross over an unguarded net from three yards out, glanced Hudson-Odoi's delivery into the far corner to redeem himself.

Fortunately for Fabregas, his countryman Alvaro Morata was on hand to bail him out with a rare couple of goals.

The teenage winger nearly got one himself when he danced into the box only to see his shot blocked by a good low save by Steele.




Cesc Fabregas has reached an agreement to join Monaco from Chelsea FC in the January transfer window, according to reports in the Italian media.

The afternoon's last notable moment saw Fabregas given a standing ovation as he left the field in the 85th minute, the Chelsea faithful rising to acknowledge a man who helped the club to two Premier League titles in a trophy-laden four-and-a-half years at the club.

For Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea captain for the day, an applauded farewell.

What does it mean?

Jenas believes spending £58m on 20-year-old Pulisic to then sell Hudson-Odoi, 18, "makes no sense" and says it will be a blow to English football and the Premier League.
