After initially announcing (via his Twitter account) that the hamstring injury he sustained against Sunderland last weekend would only keep him out for a fortnight, Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas then saw his club officially rule him out for three weeks – meaning he would almost definitely miss their crunch Premier League tie with Chelsea on October 3rd.

However, it seems that Fabregas is still intent of making it back to the first-team fold by then, telling Spanish right-wing radio station COPE;

“The injury is not as bad as we first thought. There is no muscle rupture and I will be back perfect in about 10 to 11 days.

I am working with an osteopath in Paris and just working day to day. I think I will make the Chelsea game.”
