Victor Moses missed Chelsea’s season opener against Burnley due to the red card he suffered against Arsenal in the FA Cup final after being issued two yellow cards at the Wembley Stadium back in May.

However, two Chelsea players saw red cards against Burnley on Saturday and will face suspension.

For Gary Cahill who was given a straight red card by Craig Pawson for his rash challenge on Matt Lowton in just the 14th minute of the game, the Chelsea skipper will miss the Blues’ next three games – starting with Sunday’s away trip to Spurs, while also missing Everton at home the following weekend, before the trip to Leicester City after the international break.

For Fabregas who got two yellow cards against Burnley, one for a sarcastic clap in the direction of Pawson, and his second for another rash challenge, he will miss Sunday’s trip to Wembley as Chelsea will be away to Tottenham.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
