Fabregas (illness) is in the starting XI for Chelsea's Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

Fabregas recently dealt with a hamstring injury, though he made a substitute appearance last week against Everton. His latest issue is that he's battling the flu, but it's clearly not bad enough to hold him out. He is also playing a bit further up the pitch against PSG, as Nemanja Matic will be joined by Ramires in the defensive midfield spots.

Fabregas is dealing with the flu and is considered a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain, the Daily Mirror reports.

Fabregas missed three weeks with a hamstring injury, though he was able to come on as a substitute last week against Everton. If he sits because of the illness, Willian could start in central midfield, or Oscar could come back in as well.

Fabregas is available off the bench for Chelsea's match against Everton on Wednesday.

Fabregas missed last weekend's match with a hamstring injury, and while manager Jose Mourinho said that Fabregas was fit again, he'll get another bit of a break, with Ramires starting in his place.

Fabregas (hamstring) is expected to return Wednesday to face Everton, the London Evening Standard reports. "I think Fabregas plays on Wednesday because against Villa the decision was to protect him. I didn't want to risk two players at the same time because Willian had a minor problem from the previous game and was also a risk."

Fabregas did not play Saturday against Aston Villa due to the ailment he suffered last week in the FA Cup against Liverpool, but he looks set to return against an Everton side that has given up plenty of goals this season, including six to Chelsea at Goodison Park earlier this term.

Fabregas (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Aston Villa on Saturday.

Manager Jose Mourinho said during his Friday press conference that everyone but Filipe Luis was fit, though that's clearly not the case, as a fit Fabregas would surely be able to make the match-day squad. Now that he's out, his next opportunity to play will com Wednesday against Everton, while Ramires will start in his place Saturday.

Manager Jose Mourinho noted during his Friday press conference that Filipe Luis is his only injured player, which indicates that Fabregas is fit after suffering a hamstring injury during last week's FA Cup match against Liverpool.

Fabregas' fitness doesn't necessarily mean he'll start, though Mourinho isn't one who uses much squad rotation. If he does sit Fabregas, Ramires appears to be the likely substitute, with new-signing Juan Cuadrado also a possibility.

Fabregas could miss Chelsea's next two games because of a hamstring injury, The Guardian reports.

Fabregas picked up the injury during last week's FA Cup match against Liverpool and is still unable to train. Given the timeframe, he'll miss this weekend's match against Aston Villa and then Wednesday's tie with Everton. If those are the only games he misses, he'll be back in the lineup Feb. 21 against Burnley.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed after Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Liverpool that Fabregas suffered a hamstring injury.

While Mourinho confirmed what the issue was that forced Fabregas out of the match, the severity wasn't discussed, which will certainly make him a serious injury doubt for Saturday's Premier League tie with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
