Following a scan this afternoon, the Club can confirm that Cesc Fabregas has suffered a small crack in his right fibula as a result of the collision with Barcelona defender Carles Puyol during Wednesday evening’s match. 

As a consequence, Cesc will miss the remainder of the domestic campaign as he will be out of action for at least six weeks. 

Everyone at the Club wishes Cesc a full and speedy recovery.
