Chelsea evening headlines as Lampard provides Kante injury update and exciting Havertz agreement



Lampard confirms Kante injury

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed that N’Golo Kante will miss Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League encounters with Crystal Palace and Sheffield United.

The Frenchman has been plagued by injuries during Lampard’s maiden season as Chelsea manager, and after playing a key role in Chelsea’s good form following the restart, pulled up against Watford on Saturday.

“Kante won’t be in the squad,” Lampard said. “Hurt his hamstring. A low-level hamstring, so we’re hoping it is a week or so.

“We’ll play that one as it goes but I would expect we’d be very lucky to have him [Kante] for Sheffield United.”

Marco Reus and Maurizio Sarri in agreement over Havertz

Football.London understands that Chelsea are actively pursuing a deal for Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz, having already secured the signatures of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Havertz has turned heads all over Europe with a series of stellar performances in the Budesliga, and two big names in the game have been full of praise for the midfielder, including Chelsea’s former boss.

“He is a player who combines excellent physical qualities with great technical skills,” Maurizio Sarri, as quoted by Serie A analysis, said back in November last year.

“At the moment they are using him mainly as an attacking-midfielder behind the central forward or as a winger. I think he is a complete player that could also play as a midfielder.”

Speaking in September last year, Marco Reus also lavished Havertz with special praise. The boy has enormous potential. You can see that easily,” Reus, as quoted by Goal, admitted.
