Chelsea hosted Leicester City in the premier league last night and got all three points after beating Brendan Rogers men 2-1 to move up to 3rd position.
The match was a must win for the blues as they look at featuring at the UEFA Champions League next season.
Goals from Antonio Rudiger and a penalty from Jorginho gave Thomas Tuchel’s men all three points in a much intense match. Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench to pull one back for the visitors.
Despite the win, Chelsea were hit with a big blow as inform midfielder, N’Golo Kante was unable to finish the match due to injury in the 32nd minute. He was replaced by Mateo Kovacic.
This is a Bad News for the blues as the French midfielder has been in great form for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season. The Blues lost to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge when the 30 year old French man was absent from the team.
The Blues have four days to prepare for their final league game against Aston Villa on Sunday, while there’s 10 days until their Champions League final with Manchester City.
Will Chelsea be able to lift the trophy if Kante isn’t available for the game? Drop your thoughts in the comment section and don’t forget to share. Thank You
