Chelsea’s injury update

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Sarri stated:

“The best news is that Fabregas is now very well.

“He has been training with the team during the week, so now he only has to improve his physical condition.

“In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play. At the moment Fabregas is able to be on the bench. I want to speak to him. Maybe it’s better for him to have two days of training. 

“Yesterday there were some problems with a fever and sore throat for Emerson and Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek, with the right tibia.

“I don’t know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor. I don’t know if he’ll be able to play tomorrow. I have to see the last training session.”

Maurizio Sarri began his reign as Chelsea boss with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

Chelsea then took on Unai Emery’s Arsenal.

The Blues did nearly give away a two-goal lead, but Marcos Alonso would make sure Chelsea came away with all three points, winning 3-2.

Chelsea then took on Newcastle United and after a hard-fought 90 minutes, Sarri’s men won 2-1.

Chelsea’s last game was against Bournemouth and they won 2-0.

This puts the Blues joint top of the Premier League heading into the weekend.
