Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas started and scored in Chelsea’s 2-1 loss against Crystal Palace on Saturday but the question everyone seems to be asking is ‘Will Fabregas play against Manchester City?’
Chelsea great Pat Nevin believes Chelsea boss Antonio Conte must have learnt a lot from the Palace game and also admits Fabregas doesn’t deserve to be left out.
“Antonio Conte will have learned a lot from the Palace game,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“There was the adaptation to allow Cesc to play which was totally understandable. He scored and played some beautiful passes but will the boss be tempted to go back to a more set 3-4-3 against City tomorrow?
“It is a difficult call as certainly Cesc doesn’t deserve to be left out, but it will also be on the manager’s mind that a certain style has been hugely successful for the Blues this season. I personally would find it very difficult to make that call one way or the other.”
