Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, on Monday, confirmed that N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Fikayo Tomori would miss the Blues’ Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening at Selhurst Park due to injury.
However, speaking at his pre-match press conference, Lampard was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying, “Kante won’t be in the squad. He has a low-level hamstring injury.
“We are hoping it will be a week or so. I would expect we will be very lucky to have him for Sheffield United.
“[Mateo] Kovacic trained with us today, he’s not ready for this game, hopefully, the next.
