Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata upstaged teammate Cesc Fabregas on his last appearance with the Blues as the former Real Madrid star managed to score a brace which sent Maurizio Sarri‘s men to FA Cup Fourth Round on Saturday afternoon.
The ex Arsenal and Barcelona star, who missed a penalty in a tough first half at Stamford Bridge, then received a warm standing ovation as he left the pitch with five minutes left to go in the second period.
It is understood Fabregas will join AS Monaco in the next few days, after being handed the captain’s armband for his last game in a Chelsea shirt.
However, Alvaro Morata wanted to share his feelings via Instagram with an emotional post dedicated to his compatriot: “You do not know how much I’m going to miss you!” wrote the Spaniard.
“To you and your wonderful family, thank you very much for helping us in EVERYTHING possible.
“Thanks for all the moments lived and good luck in everything you do!”
