Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard, has confirmed that his side will be without midfielder, N’Golo Kante when they host Norwich City in tonight’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
He also disclosed that defender, Andreas Christensen, is back in the squad to face Norwich after he sustained an injury against Sheffield United.
Chelsea head to the game after losing 3-0 against Sheffield in their previous game on Saturday.
Lampard’s side are currently in the third position on the Premier League table with 60 points after 35 games.
“Kante’s not fit. He has a chance for the semi-final on Sunday,” Lampard was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying.
“Andreas Christensen had to come off at half-time [at Sheffield United] with an injury, but he’s back in the squad. The rest is as we were.”
The kick-off for the match between Chelsea and Norwich City is 8:15 pm.
