Despite a good performance against Manchester City last weekend, Cesc Fabregas failed to make the starting XI today.
Antonio Conte brought on Fabregas in second half and it was Fabregas pass over the top that lead to Diego Costa’s goal.
Conte revealed after the game that Cesc Fabregas is an important Chelsea player.
Conte said: “Cesc is an important player for us.
“We all know his quality, it’s very clear. Today it was important to change the cards on the table and find a new solution to cut the point of reference for West Brom.
“I put on a player who is very good technically and with a great personality.”
