Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri spoke ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash between the Blues and newly-promoted side Cardiff City.
The Italian boss, speaking at a press conference, told journalists midfielder Cesc Fabregas could be sitting on the bench for the first time this season:
“The best news is that Fabregas is now very well” Sarri said.
“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”.
About Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Sarri added: “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”.
