Chelsea’s Europa League final plans have been rocked with the news that N’Golo Kante is almost certain to miss the showdown with Arsenal in Baku, after picking up a fresh injury in training.
The Independent report that this past Saturday in Chelsea training, the World Cup winning midfielder picked up a knee injury, just as it appeared he was set to return to-action from a hamstring issue.
It’s the second major blow for manager Maurizio Sarri who lost Ruben Loftus-Cheek to a lengthy injury in a post-season friendly with New England Revolution – the Englishman is thought to be out for up to six months.
Chelsea will hope that the midfield and team can galvanise around N’Golo Kante’s omission with injury, as well as the sidelined Antonio Rudiger and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Maurizio Sarri doesn’t have too much flexibility in-terms of his midfield selection ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final vs Arsenal, with Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley and Jorginho almost certain to start.
