Chelsea have Cesc Fabregas worry

Published Add your comment

Cesc Fabregas is on the verge of a two-game suspension after picking up his ninth yellow card of the season during Chelsea's 1-0 victory over West Ham United on Wednesday. The 27-year-old is now walking a tightrope until the FA's next disciplinary deadline on April 12, as he looks to avoid reaching the dreaded double figure landmark. With four Premier League matches still to play against Southampton, Hull, Stoke and QPR, there's plenty of time for Fabregas to be cautioned, and as a result face an automatic ban. If the Spain international is booked in the final game at Loftus Road, he would be unavailable for selection against Manchester United and Arsenal - two outings that could potentially define the Blues' season. Jose Mourinho will be hoping to avoid that scenario, particularly as Fabregas has been one of Chelsea's most important player, contributing a staggering 15 assists in the Premier League this term.
