Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas expected to return against Blackburn Rovers – EPL news
Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has set his sights on the club’s home fixture against Blackburn to return from a hamstring injury which he suffered in their UEFA Champions League defeat against Barcelona recently.
Fabregas said, “Everything is getting better. It's been a weird season for me with injuries and I just want to make it right, and I want to come back stronger than ever and fitter than ever so that it won't happen again. Hopefully you will see me against
Blackburn if I'm fit.”
Moreover, it has been reported that the 23-year-old midfielder has started running but Fabregas aims to be in peak physical form before making a comeback at Emirates. The same injury put the Spaniard on the sidelines during the starting months of the ongoing
2010-11 season as well.
Fabregas, who played an exceptional role in Arsenal’s 2-1 historic win over Barcelona in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League at Emirates, was initially doubtful for the second leg against the Catalans due to a hamstring concern.
However, Fabregas made a rapid progress and was risked to start against his former club at Nou Camp. The risk did not pay off, as Cesc was substituted in the second half at and Arsenal were also knocked out of the Champions League after losing the
tie by 3-1.
After the Barcelona match, Arsene Wenger confirmed in his post-match interview that Cesc was likely to be out of action for at least four weeks. The 23-year-old midfielder did not feature in Arsenal’s defeat against Manchester United in the quarter-final
of the FA Cup and also in their recent away draw against West Bromwich Albion.
The former player has been an influential figure for Arsenal in the current season. Cesc has scored 9 times and provided 13 assists in 31 appearances in all competitions.
