Cesc Fabregas is a major doubt for Chelsea FC’s clash with Arsenal in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, according to reports in the British media.

Metro is reporting that the 31-year-old midfielder is still struggling with the same knee injury which caused him to miss Chelsea FC’s 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town last weekend.

Fabregas will be hoping to prove his fitness to new Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri as Arsenal prepare to travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

However, it is being claimed that the Spaniard is increasingly likely to miss Saturday’s showdown between the two London sides at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC kicked off their Premier League campaign in style by claiming a thumping 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Blues are currently adapting to life under new boss Sarri following his appointment as the club’s new manager back in July after the sacking of Antonio Conte.

The Italian boss has been tasked with steering the Blues back into the top four at the very least after they finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Conte last term.

Arsenal, meanwhile, slumped to a disappointing 2-0 loss to Manchester United in their Premier League opener on Sunday.
