Chelsea pair Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas to miss FA Cup tie with Norwich City
Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has revealed that he will not risk either Gary Cahill or Cesc Fabregas for Wednesday’s fixture with Norwich City.
During Saturday’s goalless draw with Leicester City in the Premier League, Cahill was withdrawn during the first half, while Fabregas was substituted just before the hour mark.
Conte has said that both players are suffering with minor injuries and that he will not use either of the duo for the FA Cup third round replay at Stamford Bridge.
At the pre-match press conference, the 48-year-old said: “Cahill, but his problem is not so serious. A muscular problem.
“Cesc had a little problem in his hamstring and is not available for tomorrow’s game.”
The winners of the encounter in West London will host Newcastle United in the fourth round.
