Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas set to return against Everton

manager expects to return from a hamstring
injury in time to play at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Spain
international Fabregas has missed Chelsea’s past two matches against
Manchester City and Aston Villa, after coming off in the League Cup
semi-final second-leg clash against Liverpool earlier this month.

The former midfielder was expected to come into contention for Saturday’s trip to Villa Park, which Chelsea won 2-1.
However, Mourinho opted not to throw Fabregas into action as a precautionary measure.
“I think Fabregas plays on Wednesday because against Villa the decision was to protect him.” Mourinho said.
“I
didn’t want to risk two players at the same time because Willian had a
minor problem from the previous game and was also a risk. So to start
two players with a risk was a big gamble. So we gambled with one.
“We
didn’t miss Cesc against Aston Villa because Ramires is back and the
best of Ramires is back too. He was great against Liverpool, Manchester
City and Aston Villa. He has a different profile of play to Cesc, but he
gives a lot.”
Fabregas has proved a hit at Stamford Bridge since signing in a big-money move from Barcelona in the close-season.
The Spaniard has contributed 15 assists and two goals in 21 Premier League appearances.
