Chelsea landed a blow as the midfield star will miss two games due to illness


Chelsea landed a blow as the midfield star will miss two games through injury

Chelsea short in midfield

One of the biggest questions surrounding the Chelsea team heading into the deadline was the lack of reinforcements in midfield. Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Jorginho were the only recognized high quality options available to Thomas Tuchel.

This issue was somewhat addressed in the final moments of the transfer window, as Saúl Niguez joined the club on loan from Atlético de Madrid for the season.

However, his career at Chelsea so far has been disappointing to say the least. Hooked at half-time on his debut against Aston Villa, he has only played 71 minutes of the Carabao Cup third-round tie against the same opponent since then.

In fact, when Chelsea needed a midfield option against Manchester City, it was Ruben Loftus-Cheek, not Saul, who entered the fray.

Chelsea landed a blow and Kante was out for two games

Now Chelsea fans’ worst nightmares have come true as they will be left without world-class option N’golo Kante for their next two matches.

According to Goal.com correspondent Nizaar Kinsella, the Frenchman will miss his matches with Juventus and Southampton due to illness, although it is not believed to be Covid-19.

This will be a huge blow to Tuchel, who had just seen his point man return to the side after injury, but will now be without him until after the international break.

With two games in 4 days, it remains to be seen how the German coach will rotate his midfield options to try to score 6 points out of 6 possible in both competitions.

Will Kante’s absence affect the club’s results before the international break?
