Chelsea morning news: Fabregas eases loyalty concerns, Kompany not bothered by Blues

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Cesc Fabregas has brushed aside any worries over loyalty ahead of this weekend’s clash against Arsenal.

The Spaniard spent his early senior career at the Gunners and had the chance to re-join them earlier in the summer.

“I remind you that I played the Champions League final against Barcelona (with Arsenal) and I swear I would have done anything to win that game - So I know that when I play against Arsenal I will know who is my (current) team,” said Fabregas.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany says he’s unconcerned by Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table.

Chelsea currently enjoy a five point cushion over the current Premier League champions.

“I can't really say that personally I'm looking too much at Chelsea. When we won the league first time [in 2012], we were nine points behind with six or seven games left to play,” said the City skipper.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has been left out of the latest Brazil squad for the next international break.

The Blues star was a key part of the side that qualified for and thrilled fans at the World Cup before their dramatic exit to Germany.

Holding midfielder Souza has taken his place in the squad.
