‘We’re In Trouble If He’s Not Back’ ‘We Clearly Missed Him’ Fans Praying Chelsea Star Is Fit For Cup Final

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel confirmed after Wednesday’s match against Arsenal that N’Golo Kante has picked up an Achilles problem.

It was originally assumed that the 30-year-old was rested for the defeat to the Gunners ahead of the FA Cup final this weekend, but Tuchel claimed there was “no chance” he could play midweek due to the pain he was in.

We shall have to wait until Tuchel’s pre-match press conference to see if Kante will be fit to face Leicester but fans on Twitter are worried about the Frenchman’s potential absence:

Both Kante and Mateo Kovacic are in a race to be fit for the final at Wembley. Supporters will be keeping their fingers crossed that at least one of them is available, with Tuchel having expressed his dissatisfaction with the pairing of Jorginho and Billy Gilmour.

Kante’s form, in particular, has been vital to Chelsea’s recent run of good results and his presence in the starting lineup on Saturday would be a massive boost.
