Chelsea's players are in dreamland under Antonio Conte - well, at least most of them are.

Three wins in three for the Blues marks an excellent start to the new Premier League season, with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa particularly thriving under their Italian manager.

Quite how Conte has turned around Chelsea's fortunes is unknown but what's certain is they're back in business and gunning for the title.

One big decision he has made is dropping playmaker Cesc Fabregas who, incredibly, has played just 12 minutes so far, during a 2-1 win over Watford last weekend.

The Spain international's future has long been in doubt and reports suggest Conte has made a decision on where it lies.

According to The Sun, who reference El Confidencial, Conte has sent a 'clear message' to Fabregas that his days at Stamford Bridge are numbered and that he is free to leave.

This revelation comes following Chelsea's demolition of Burnley on Saturday, during which Fabregas sat on the bench and stepped out onto the turf only to warm up.

Conte's decision also comes after he praised the former Arsenal midfielder for his attitude and willingness to fight for a starting role.

He said, per the Evening Standard: "I am pleased with his attitude. He is working very hard during the training sessions to show me he deserves to play.

"I want to see this, that all the players show me they deserve to start the game.

"I am a very happy manager when I see this commitment. When you have many players thinking about the team and not himself, it’s important.

"This situation is happening at Chelsea."

Where Fabregas will end up this summer still remains to be seen but a move to Real Madrid or Juventus could be on the cards, despite his past with Barcelona.
