Chelsea have a semi final FA Cup clash against Manchester United at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday, and it promises to be a huge game for the Blues.

Manchester United are in good form heading to this game, as they have been unbeaten since February.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has now revealed ahead of the game that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante will miss this clash.

Kante picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 win against Watford and hasn’t featured since then.

“The squad is okay but N’Golo Kante won’t be fit for the match,” revealed Lampard. “He’s still not right so he’s out.

“Other than that, we have a few people with a few little niggles which we’ll monitor over the next 24 hours and then we will be ready to go.”

However, after beating Palace to extend Manchester United’s unbeaten run to 18 games, Solskjaer has revealed that his players are fit ahead of Sunday.

“We’re fine, we’re fit and the players are raring to go, want to play again,” Solskjaer told a news conference.

“Of course, anyone can hold their hands up at any moment and say, ‘I want to sit out this one’.

“We’ve got players on the bench desperate to join in, but it was forced with Brandon [Williams] and Luke [Shaw] not being available today.

“Timothy [Fosu-Mensah] did great and Scott [McTominay] has been fantastic. He took a shift for Nemanja [Matic].

“We’ve got the players who’ve had the chance over this period to take players off, being three goals up in many games after 60 minutes. We’ve been fortunate in that respect.”
