Chelsea's Kante to miss Zenit clash, says Tuchel
Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante will not be involved in the club's Champions League opener against Zenit St Petersburg, manager Thomas Tuchel said on Monday (September 12) ahead of their Group H clash against the Russian side. Kante has been struggling with an ankle injury this season, and was substituted at halftime against Liverpool before the international break when the problem flared up again and he subsequently missed France's World Cup qualifiers. Tuchel was hopeful Kante would be back in action against Zenit but now expects the 30-year-old to return for Sunday's Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
