Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has undergone a successful operation to repair his broken nose, the Barclays Premier League champions have announced.

The Spaniard suffered the injury in a clash with Charlie Adam in early April and was forced to play the remainder of the season wearing a protective mask.

But the club have now confirmed that the 28-year-old has had the problem rectified and Spain coach Vicente del Bosque revealed at his squad announcement earlier this week that he expects him to feature in the upcoming matches against Costa Rica and Belarus.

"Cesc Fabregas has successfully undergone surgery on his broken nose," read a statement on Chelsea's official website.

"The midfielder had been having difficulty breathing as a result of the injury he sustained during our game against Stoke last month, but after the successful operation the problem has been resolved."
