ENGLAND – Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has confirmed that midfielder, N’Golo Kante, will miss his side’s Premier League clash with Fulham on Saturday evening due to suspension.
Lampard also disclosed that every other player is available for selection against Fulham except Kante.
Kante didn’t feature for Chelsea in their FA Cup win over Morecambe last Sunday following a hamstring issue he picked up in the 3-1 defeat against Manchester City on January 3.
The France international is suspended for the game against Fulham after picking up five yellow cards this season in the Premier League.
“We are all good. N’Golo Kante is suspended, but he’s back in training tomorrow. So we are all good,” Lampard told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
Kante will now hope to feature for Chelsea against his former side Leicester City next week at the King Power.
