Cesc Fabregas’ week has got off to a stinker after the Spaniard was involved in a nasty clash with Chelsea team-mate Thibaut Courtois.
The 30-year-old midfielder took to Instagram to show off his war wounds and sarcastically thank the Belgian goalkeeper on Monday afternoon.
Fabregas sported a plaster on the top of his forehead while he also had an ice pack bandaged to his right leg, in what could have been quite the collision.
The former Arsenal man wasn’t the only player that came off badly in the exchange as Courtois was on the opposite side of the room receiving treatment.
There was no bad blood between the two for the collision as Fabregas filmed his team-mate on a physio bench with a laughing emoji placed on top of the video.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will be hoping that the incident isn’t anything serious as his side host Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.
The incident comes days after the Blues’ 3-0 fourth-round win in the FA Cup as Michy Batshuayi’s brace and a superb Marcos Alonso free-kick sent Conte’s side through.
