Chelsea have not had good luck with injuries since the end of last season, and the problem has been extended to international duty as seen with Emerson’s hamstring injury last month. And the latest to be hit by our ongoing misfortune is midfielder N’Golo Kanté, who has suffered a muscle injury in the last hour, during warm-up ahead of France’s match against Iceland in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Kanté is one of the players who has been affected most by injuries in recent months, missing matches at the end of last season and also at the beginning of Frank Lampard’s term at Stamford Bridge because of hamstring, knee and ankle issues. In fact, he has not been able to play more than just a few matches this season for Chelsea.

Now we can only hope that this new injury is not too severe, so can get proper rest for his body in these troublesome times for his career.
