Fabregas told Onda Cero: "On Saturday Conte told me that I would rest and we will see for Wednesday, it makes me very excited to play against Atletico. They've told me the Metropolitano is a spectacular stadium."

Fabregas showed his satisfaction at Diego Costa getting the move back to Atletico he wanted. "I've become very good friends with him and we have a big connection on and off the pitch. Diego has been through a lot, he didn't know it was going to happen and now he's happy. I wish him the best, he's a great friend."

The player's absence from the national team has not killed his hopes. "Lopetegui called me the first time he didn't call me up and I understood perfectly. I've been a year out of the squad. The World Cup is far away but I feel like an important player at Chelsea and I hope to return."
