Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas played what is likely to be his final match for the club in a 2-0 home win against Nottingham Forest. The Spaniard is set to join Thierry Henry AS Monaco side in a 3-year deal. The 31-year-old joined the Blues from Barcelona in 2014 after three average years at Camp Nou. He helped the London club lift 2 Premier League crowns, 2 League Cups and FA Cup. He leaves the club having played 501 matches (Arsenal & Chelsea), scored 79 goals and assisted 148 others in all competitions. He is no doubt a Premier League legend. Today, our focus shifts to all-time most assist in the League history to date. We want to see who is lucky to be in the top six alongside Cesc.
