Conte confirms £200k-a-wk Chelsea player will miss clash vs West Ham
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that Cesc Fabregas will not recover from his injury in time to face West Ham United in the EFL Cup tomorrow.
The fixture at the London Stadium could have been the perfect opportunity for the playmaker to return, but he hasn’t recovered from his injury in time.
Fabregas, who earns £200,000-a-week (via Telegraph), is, however, expected to be in contention to earn a starting place against Southampton on Sunday.
