Chelsea’s midfield general N’Golo Kante is a now a doubt for Manchester United game, Maurizio Sarri confirmed in his pre-match press conference.
The Frenchman hobbled off against Burnley but was expected to be fit for the United clash.
Providing injury updates on several key players, Sarri Said:
‘Rudiger is okay for the moment, Kante we are trying to recover but I am not sure.
‘The operation of Callum (Hudson-Odoi) went well, he will be back with us. He is a strong man and he will be able to return better than ever.’
It will be a big blow for the Blues should Kante miss the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday as his United counterpart Hererra is expected to return providing the Red Devils with some extra bite in the middle of the pitch.
