The 6 best moments of Cesc Fabregas's season

Cesc Fabregas's first season as a Chelsea player is over after picking up a suspension against West Bromwich Albion. Which makes now a good time to run the rule over his greatest moments since moving back to London.

6. Trying to murder Raheem Sterling

Chelsea had won the title the previous weekend, which meant that Liverpool's visit to Stamford Bridge was almost entirely pointless. Cesc Fabregas does not like playing pointless football, but he does like hurting Liverpool players, and combined those two in an attempt to get himself sent off within about 40 seconds of kickoff. It didn't work, but it was very funny.

5. Possessing a magic hat

4. Scoring at Loftus Road, kissing the shirt

Forget the title race -- we were going to win it by miles anyway. Scoring at Loftus Road is mostly important for one simple reason: it made QPR AND Arsenal supporters very sad simultaneously. He might not be the hero we need, but Cesc Fabregas is definitely the hero we deserve.

3. Hitting referees

For most players the above clip would be the highlight of their careers. Chelsea players aim for greater things, however. After smacking Jon Moss at Derby, Fabregas came back and did exactly the same thing to poor Michael Oliver two months later. Two moments of pure, untrammeled beauty. And even together they only finish in third, because ...

2. Punching a bus

For most testosterone-fueled young men, road rage is mostly restricted to a shouting match. Perhaps some shoving if both parties are really into it. Cesc not only transcended the pettiness of motoring disputes, he did it in such a way that he rose into British streeting folklore. Have you punched a bus? No? Then bow down to Cesc Fabregas.

1. The red card

LOL. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL.
