Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has discussed his reasoning for leaving Spain star Cesc Fabregas out of the Blues' win over West Ham United in the Premier League on Monday night.

Pep Comments On Yaya Relationship

The Italian tactician has suggested that he felt midfielders N'Golo Kante, Nemanja Matic and Oscar would be better suited to the game than the former FC Barcelona player, but insisted that his team selections could vary as the season progresses.

"Cesc is Chelsea's player and I'm happy with his attitude and behaviour," he said, according to the Daily Star.

"He must know, when you are at a great team like Chelsea, I have to take decisions before the game, to choose a starting XI.

"It can happen that Fabregas isn't in the starting XI but it can happen to all the players.

"It's important to always see the right attitude because we must fight this season.

"Now, I took this decision but in the next game, we don't know, I could change or not."
