N’Golo Kanté is injured again

N’Golo Kanté’s latest comeback attempt lasted seven games and a little over a month, before picking up yet another injury, which means that we’ve most likely seen the last of him for this season. And unless he signs a new contract, as if this season hasn’t been depressing enough already, the last we’ve seen him in a Chelsea shirt.

Caretaker boss Frank Lampard confirmed the news before our 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest, the 38th game (of 47 total) we’ve played without our talismanic midfielder, who missed seven months while dealing with a hamstring problem — and who’s missed an increasingly higher percentage of our games over the past few seasons.

“We lost N’Golo in training yesterday. He felt something in his groin. So that’s probably a couple of weeks and we know what that means pretty much. We just have to keep going.”

So yeah. Two weeks left of the season. Will we see N’Golo next season?
