EPL: Sarri speaks on Fabregas’ position at Chelsea, predicts Arsenal’s season

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that a “very unusual” injury has ruled Cesc Fabregas out of Chelsea’s clash with Arsenal billed for Saturday evening.

The 31-year-old midfielder played 60 minutes of Chelsea’s Community Shield defeat to Manchester City but was not available in Saturday’s win over Huddersfield Town due to knee problem.

Sarri also confirmed that midfielder, Mateo Kovacic was available but disclosed that the Croatian would not be able to manage the full 90 minutes against Arsenal.
