N’Golo Kante limped off for France last night nursing what appeared to be a hamstring injury.
The midfielder is a key man for Les Bleus and for Chelsea, and the news is devastating to fans who have already seen their top striker Alvaro Morata pick up a similar issue in the last 7 day.
Chelsea have had a superb injury record over the last few seasons, with last season in particular seeing Antonio Conte able to pick the same starting XI – including Kante – with astonishing regularity. Blues fans are now remembering what it’s like to suffer from these kind of issues, with Alvaro Morata pulling up with a hamstring injury against Man City last weekend, following Eden Hazard’s broken ankle suffered at the end of last season.
The severity of Kante’s issue is still unknown, but even in the best case scenario he’s likely to miss the Crystal Palace match next weekend.
