International Watch: Fabregas ruled out of Spain Qualifier

5

Chelsea and Spainish International Cesc Fabregas has been ruled out of Spain´s Euro 2016 Qualifier with Belarus with a hamstring complaint. Jose Mourinho even stated he had ¨gambled¨ when playing him 90 minutes against Liverpool and the CL midweek match respectively. However, Fabregas is being tipped to be fit for Chelsea´s next league match against West Bromwich Albion on Nov 22nd. Given that Chelsea have one of the stronger match ups in Week 12, Fabregas´s starting status will need to be monitored. I suggest having a viable backup bench option in case the Spanish midfielder fails to regain fitness.
