Chelsea midfielder Cesc to return to action with mask

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will wear a mask for their derby clash with QPR.

The Daily Mail says Fabregas will wear a special protective face mask for Chelsea after breaking his nose last weekend.

Fabregas suffered the break during Chelsea's win over Stoke City on Saturday, taking a hit to the face from Charlie Adam's forearm minutes before the Scot struck a 66-yard wondergoal at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard has since travelled to Milan to see a specialist, who produced masks for Fernando Torres, Petr Cech and Demba Ba previously, in the hope of returning to action as soon as possible.

The mask, branded with Fabregas's initial and squad number 'C4', was made by the Ortholabsport, an orthopedic centre in Milan, and their craftsmen Stefano Duchini and Lucilla Pezzoni.
