Lampard Confirms Major Injury Blow for Chelsea Ahead of United's Clash on Sunday

Chelsea would be out against Manchester united on Sunday, as to tie horns together in their FA Cup Semi Final.

However, Chelsea would be without one of their main player in the midfield against Manchester united on Sunday, and that's a major injury blow for the Blues.

Frank Lampard has confirmed that one of their midfielders, N'Golo Kante will miss the FA Cup semi-final tie against Manchester United on Sunday.

Frank Lampard said in his Press Conference today;

"The squad is okay but N'Golo Kante won't be fit for the match"

"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."

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard thought that the Frenchman would be available to face Manchester united on Sunday, but it's kind of unfortunate that Kante hasn't recovered from the hamstring injury he picked up on July 4.

N'Golo Kante's absence on Sunday is big blow for Chelsea, as no Chelsea's midfielder could do it like Kante does in the midfield, and it simply means that Manchester united would have to terrorize Chelsea in the midfield being their weak point, as per N'Golo Kante's absence.

The Blues midfielder hasn't be able to partake in any matche for the Blues since he picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 win against Watford on July 4, when he's was subbed off for Billy Glimor.

All in all, Chelsea would have to face Manchester united in their FA Cup Semi Final on Sunday without their French-Manchine in the midfield.

Do you think Chelsea could defeat Manchester united without N'Golo Kante on Sunday?
