Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is having surgery in Italy to fix his broken nose picked up following a challenge with Stoke City’s Charlie Adam on the weekend, reports the Express.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping to have Fabregas back in action for their remaining games to come in the Premier League, but he will certainly be feeling the effects of a physical encounter with Stoke. He’s not the first player to have come away with battle scars against the Potters, but did seem good-natured about the incident with Adam.
He’s said to be seeing Dr Paco to have work on his eyes, but could be a doubt for their coming clash against Queens Park Rangers if his recovery is slow.
