Chelsea fans may still wish they had Cesc Fabregas.

The Spanish midfielder only played a backup role under Maurizio Sarri.

Fabregas only made 16 appearances under the Italian manager; with only six of them coming in the Premier League.

Given Jorginho's struggles at the base of midfield, Fabregas may have been getting more chances if he decided to stick it out at the club.

However, his lack of game time meant that he pursued a move to Monaco in January so he could play under former teammate Thierry Henry.

But how is the Spanish midfielder getting on at Monaco?

His start to life in France was pretty disastrous.

Fabregas' first appearance for the club against Marseille ended in a draw, but his next four games all ended in defeat.

The main reason he went to Monaco was to play under Henry, but he was sacked just days after Fabregas signed.

But the club's form has picked up since parting with Henry.

They have gone unbeaten in their last four games, winning three of them.

And in their last win against Lyon, Fabregas produced a pass which is dividing football fans on social media.

Picking up the ball in central midfield, Fabregas pressed his foot down on the ball, making it spin to his teammate.

Given it's uniqueness it's almost impossible to describe, so to understand it you can watch the pass below.

That is either genius or a complete fluke.

When pressed by Metro Sport whether he meant it or not, Fabregas insisted that it was intentional.

When Fabregas arrived at Monaco, the team were sitting in last place in Ligue 1 and looked as if they would drop back to France's second tier.

But, after picking up 10 points from their last four games, Les Monégasques have moved up  to 16th and are now five points clear of the relegation zone.

It seems Fabregas is doing great things since making the move from Chelsea in January.
