WCQ: Chelsea woes increase as midfielder limps out

WCQ: Chelsea woes increase as midfielder limps out

08 Oct 2017, 10:00

?It's fair to say Chelsea's defence of their Premier League title hasn't got off to the best of starts.

Antonio Conte's side have been playing catch up to the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United since their first half capitulation against Burnley on the opening day, and now they are facing a problem completely out of their control.

The curse of the international duty appears to have struck Chelsea right at the heart of their midfield, after N'Golo Kante limped out of France's World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria on Saturday night.

The influential midfielder was withdrawn just past the half hour mark of the match with what seems to be a hamstring problem, and while the severity of the injury isn't yet clear, that hasn't stopped Chelsea fans from having their say on the impact this may have on their season.

?It'll be no consolation to Chelsea fans, but at least France still had something to play for.
