Following the controversy decisions in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham that saw Dier and Vertoghen remain on the pitch for the same tackle that got Gary Cahill sent off against Burnley, another controversial decision will see Everton miss a key player when they visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Everton will be without key midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, who received a second yellow card in Everton’s 1-1 draw against Manchester City on Monday night despite clearly winning the ball.
Everton can’t appeal the red card received by their key midfielder since he was sent off for two yellow cards. This will definitely be a big loss for the Toffees and a bonus for Chelsea.
Fabregas, who missed Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, will be available for Sunday’s clash against Everton at Stamford Bridge.
