The Chelsea player has failed to recover in time for the forthcoming match
Back on the pitch only a couple of days after their weekend soirees, both Chelsea and Leicester City will be taking on each other this Tuesday in a crucial fixture for either side. Where Leicester City are looking to further hammer down their spot in the top 4, Chelsea are striving to slowly claw their way back into the coveted spots.
Ahead of the matchup, both sides have some contentious injury issues to navigate with pivotal names being battered. As the clash edges closer, there’s now further clarity on the involvement of Vardy and Kante for the match.
Lampard Confirms Kante Remains On The Injury Bed
The Chelsea manager ascertained that Kante would be out for another encounter with the midfielder still struggling with his injury.
“Andreas Christensen’s available and N’Golo Kante unfortunately isn’t, his hamstring isn’t ready,” Lampard said.
Jamie Vardy Injury Update
Leicester City are meanwhile set to have striker Vardy at their disposal with the player shrugging off a slight injury concern ahead of the showdown. It comes across as a massive boost to the third place side with the striker having already netted on 11 occasions for the club.
The side will be without Dennis Praet for three months with the player suffering a gruesome injury.
Lampard meanwhile spoke about Chelsea’s approach going forward in the league with the manager saying the club was not thinking about the title currently.
“We can’t consider too much the race as it stands, instead we have to consider ourselves – consider can we get a result against Leicester who are a competitor up there,” said Lampard.
“And then see can we get wins together that will propel us back up to where we want to be.
“But the race is relatively open, especially in comparison to recent years I suppose.
“Leicester are in the race for sure, the way they are playing and the results they’re getting and their position in the league.
“We managed to get above Leicester at the back-end of last season, but it was a big ask for us.
“They are a very good team, with very good individuals, we know that, and a really good manager in Brendan Rodgers.
“The reason I say about the title race is because I don’t want to look that far ahead.”
