Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was forced off injured in Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Leicester City on Tuesday night.

The 30-year-old was replaced in the first half by fellow midfielder Mateo Kovacic, a sight that got fans worried with the Blues having a Champions League final soon.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has played down fears Kante will miss Chelsea’s final two games of the season after going off injured against Leicester.

Asked if Kante and Kai Havertz – who was ruled out of the Leicester clash with a minor hamstring injury – would be fit for the final two games, Tuchel told Sky Sports: “I don’t know yet. We will check them tomorrow.

“I have a good feeling with NG [Kante], he said he felt something and didn’t want to risk a muscle injury, so I hope for Sunday, the same with Kai.”
