N’Golo Kante will miss Champions League game but could be back for weekend derby

Sad news coming from the Chelsea camp, as they prepare to kick start their UEFA champions league campaign against Russian side,as N’golo Kante is to miss the clash due to injury.

Now the international break is in the rear-view
mirror, we can really start getting stuck into the
new season.
This week is a good one – the first game of our
Champions League defence followed by a big derby
against Spurs at the weekend.
The bad news is that we will be without key man
N’Golo Kante for that first game – and possibly the
second one too.
In his press conference today, Thomas Tuchel
confirmed Kante wouldn’t return for the Zenit St
Petersburg game, and while he kept the door open
for the Spurs match, it was by no means definitive.
Breaking: N’Golo Kante ruled out for
Chelsea against Zenit tomorrow but
Thomas Tuchel is hopeful the
midfielder will be back for Spurs.
Christian Pulisic also out. https://

Our win against Aston Villa last week showed a)
that we can win without Kante but that b) we look
very vulnerable without him.
Zenit shouldn’t present too much of an obstacle,
but Spurs in a derby game is not a fixture we’d
want to play without the France star.
Either way, there’s not much we can do apart from
hope for a swift recovery, and hope Kante isn’t
pushed into playing before he’s ready.
