Huge Blow: Maurizio Sarri confirmed Key Player could MISS Europa League Tie

Frenchman N’Golo Kante’s 2018/19 campaign might just be over after succumbing to an injury during Chelsea triumph over Watford in the weekend.

The France international will subbed off in the 10th minute in their League match and was replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who helped the team secure a 3-0 win scoring the opener.

But Kante might just be missing out the rest of the Blues campaign with the Europa League semi-final second leg against German club Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday and also their final League match against Leicester City.

The Stamford Bridge head coach Maurizio Sarri admitted that he should have rested Kante and was not sure if the French midfielder will play on Thursday.

Speaking via Independent, Sarri said: “The problem is with his hamstring, but I think I made a mistake. Probably today he had to rest.

“Sometimes its difficult to put him on the bench, a player so important like Hazard and Kante but you have to do it.

“It is very difficult to recover him for the next two matches, we want to play the final so he is lucky, we have to recover him for the final.”

Speaking about the possibility of winning the Europa League and gain a top four spot, Sarri continued: “We want to be at the end of the Premier League in the top four because we want the next Champions league and we see the Europa League in a different way.

“We want to win it because we think that we deserve to win a trophy this season, we have two targets.”
