Cesc Fabregas & Chelsea
Maurizio Sarri has a happy problem on his hands at Chelsea this season.
Sarri has Chelsea lined up in a 4-3-3 formation, and the battle for a spot in the Blues midfield is fierce.
Jorginho and N’Golo Kante seem locked in as two certain starters for Chelsea in the middle of the park.
That leaves one spot open for Ross Barkley, Cesc Fabregas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mateo Kovacic to fight over.
At the moment, Barkley seems to be the preferred option.
As for Cesc Fabregas, the Spanish midfielder has been restricted to just 22 minutes of Premier League football this term.
Fabregas has picked up those minutes in cameo appearances against Burnley and Crystal Palace in Chelsea’s last two league games.
For the record, Fabregas is out of contract at Chelsea at the end of the season.

Man United & Cesc Fabregas
Manchester United could make a shock a shock move for Cesc Fabregas, according to Ladbrokes.
The Chelsea midfielder is out of contract next summer and after falling down the Stamford Bridge pecking order, the bookies have priced up his next potential destination.
While AC Milan remain 2/1 favourites for his signature, United have seen their odds of making a move slashed from 12/1 to just 4/1 this week.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It looks as though Fabregas and Mourinho could bet set for an Old Trafford reunion – if the United boss can keep hold of his job until the summer.”
