Chelsea’s team news has just been released, and there may be one very notable absence from the Blues squad.
N’Golo Kante limped off within the first half towards Leicester on Tuesday, and whereas Thomas Tuchel and all his employees performed it down, it was clearly sufficient of a priority for them to know he wasn’t going for use as we speak.
With the Champions League ultimate lower than every week away, that’s worrying.
We’re assured he’ll begin that recreation, however it will likely be two weeks since he accomplished 90 minutes by that point, and there’s at all times the fear he received’t be totally sharp and prepared for the excessive depth recreation Pep Guardiola’s Man City are going to attempt to unleash.
Perhaps it’s even a extra critical harm than feared, and Tuchel is enjoying it down as a smokescreen.
Either manner, it will likely be very fascinating to see what goes on in coaching within the subsequent few days.
