Fabregas, who was playing with a protective mask after suffering a broken nose, scored the match-winner in the 88th minute of Chelsea's 1-0 victory over QPR on Sunday.

Chelsea struggled to get much going against QPR, a bit of a surprising development given how poor the Rs' defense has been of late. Nevertheless, Chelsea finally broke through when Eden Hazard set up Fabregas, who squirted a shot through three defenders and passed goalkeeper Robert Green. It was only his third goal of the season, and while his 16 assists leads the league, he has only one in his last seven league matches.

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 (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.
