Chelsea played Leicester City in second time in one week. Despite losing in the Fa Cup finals to the foxes. The blues were not ready to suffer the same fate again. As they managed to put two past Kasper Schmeichel.
But that didn't come without a hefty price for Tuchel to pay. As he lost his ever present servant N'golo Kante through injury. He had to be substituted in the 30th minute. After he signalled to the bench of his problems.
And the German tactician had something to say on Kante's injury, "We will check them tomorrow. I have a good feeling with N'Golo. He said he felt something, he didn't want to risk a muscle injury. I hope for Sunday (he will be fit).
He went out before ( a potential) injury. He said he would get injured if he continued to play." Concluded the German tactician as per The Sun. Meanwhile the blues will be preparing, for their last premier league match against Aston Villa.
Meanwhile Kovacic made a return after a very difficult spell out injured. Missing two champions league semi final fixtures against Real Madrid. But he came in for Kante yesterday. A good performance he had which gave Tuchel another selection option. Going into champions league finals.
