The 29 year old France International suffered a hamstring injury in the Blues 3-0 win over Watford a fortnight ago and Blues Boss, Frank Lampard revealed on Friday that his star player will miss the important clash on Sunday.
According to Lampard...”N’Golo Kante won’t be fit for the match, he’s still not right, so he’s out.”
Also, set to miss the Wembley clash with the France World Cup winner will be Billy Gilmour who had a surgery a fortnight ago and he’s expected to miss the remainder of the season.
This is another opportunity for Jorginho to push his case further in the heart of Frank Lampard if he starts on Sunday.
The Italy International had been starved of minutes upon resumption of the league as Lampard preferred Kante and Gilmour in the holding role.
Jorginho was called up first from the bench in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace before earning his first start since the restart in the 3-0 loss to Sheffield United.
