Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will face a selection headache in midfield ahead of Chelsea’s match against Stoke City later today as he will have to make a choice between Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas.
Despite starting fewer games for Chelsea this season, Fabregas has provided seven assists for Chelsea this season and Conte believes Fabregas is an important player for Chelsea.
“Cesc, this season, is showing to be a great professional but, above all, a great person. This season he faced a new situation – in the past, he has always played every single game,” Conte said.
“But Cesc has shown he is a really, really important player.”
