Chelsea will have to do without N’Golo Kante but he has urged his teammates to give everything to try beat Manchester United, MySportDab reports.
N’Golo Kante has been ruled out of Chelsea FA Cup semi final tie against Manchester United on Sunday.
Kante suffered a hamstring injury in the 3-0 Premier League win over Watford a fortnight ago.
And now Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard revealed the midfielder is not ready to return against United.
Lampard Said On Friday:
“N’Golo Kante won’t be fit for the match, he’s still not right, so he’s out.
“Other than that, we have a few people with little niggles, which I’ll monitor over the next 24 hours or so and then we’ll be ready to go.”
Lampard has urged his players to grasp their opportunity to win a trophy in his first season in charge.
As the Blues are also battling to attempt to finish in the top four in the English Premier League.
Chelsea will also face Bayern in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on August 8.
Although their hopes of reaching the quarter finals are slim as they trail 3-0 from the first leg.
Lampard Talks About Trophy Chase:
“Considering where we are, we’re in the semi final of the FA Cup, we know what’s in front of us.
“The league is obviously huge but at this point you fight on two fronts and we have to give everything to try and do that.
A club like Chelsea will always want to win these kinds of trophies, it’s what we’ve done very well in the modern era.
“Of course, it feels like a slightly different position this year because of the circumstances of the season.
But we have an opportunity and it’s up to the players and ourselves to make the best of it on Sunday.
“We’re playing a good team, they are in good form and whoever would await us in the final will be a good team, so the work is to be done.”
