Premier League football resumes this weekend, after over a week of international football, and Maurizio Sarri is delighted that league football is back.

The Chelsea boss revealed in his press conference today that he is delighted with the return of Cesc Fabregas, who has been away from the team since the start of the season due to injury, and Sarri revealed that it’s the best news for him.

“The best news is that Fabregas is now very well,” Sarri said. “He has been training with the team during the week, so now he only has to improve his physical condition.

“In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play. At the moment Fabregas is able to be on the bench. I want to speak to him. Maybe it’s better for him to have two days of training.”

Giving an injury update on the team, Sarri said: “Yesterday there were some problems with a fever and sore throat for Emerson and Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek, with the right tibia.

“I don’t know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor. I don’t know if he’ll be able to play tomorrow. I have to see the last training session.”
