Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas looks doubtful for our Community Shield clash against Manchester City on Sunday after his recent post on Instagram.

The veteran midfielder posted a picture on his Instagram page of a pair of crutches and called them his “new best friends”.

Fabregas has been a key player for Sarri in pre-season thus far, and has started all three games alongside Jorginho and Ross Barkley in the centre of midfield, but it’s yet to be seen if he’ll be fit in time for this weekend’s Community Shield clash.

With N’Golo Kante still not back from his World Cup vacation, Maurizio Sarri will have to replace Fabregas with another midfielder, and we still have Tiemoue and Danny Drinkwater as likely replacements.
