Thomas Tuchel has issued a worrying update on N’Golo Kante, as he missed the Wednesday’s clash vs Arsenal.
The Blues suffered a 1-0 loss, with Emile Smith Rowe netting the only goal of the night.
After the game, Tuchel explained why he had withdrawn Kante.
“N’Golo (was left out) for pain management,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s 5th Stand App. “He has pain in the Achilles and he suffers from that.
“There was no chance (he could play) because we miss Kovacic (too).”
The French midfielder could yet be in the frame for the FA Cup final vs Leicester City on Saturday, given it was only pain management rather than an out and out injury.
