Chelsea fans on Twitter have been discussing the form of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic ahead of the Blues’ return to Premier League action this weekend.
Both players have come in for criticism this season and had a disappointing international break, with Fabregas missing a penalty in Spain’s win over Ukraine and Matic being sent off while playing for Serbia.
Many Chelsea supporters remain unconvinced the pair should play against Aston Villa on Saturday, with Ramires, John Mikel Obi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek among the other options.
Mikel – Loftus-Cheek pivot if Matic and Cesc are going to continue their form where they left off. — Another Chelsea Fan (@AnotherChelsFan) October 12, 2015
The fact that Ramires has been our best CDM this season tells you everything you need to know about Matic & Cesc so far.

I want Ruben to partner Cesc for a couple of games and give Matic some time to regain his form. — TheJoseEra (@TheJoseEra) October 11, 2015
It’s clearly Matic holding Cesc back.
