Chelsea FC are hopeful that N’Golo Kante will be able to play a part in the Europa League final clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night, according to reports.

The Guardian is claiming that the Blues have not given up hope of the France international being able to feature for the west London side in Baku this week.

That is despite Kante having missed training to have treatment on a knee injury in recent days.

The same story says that despite Kante having missed Chelsea FC’s final training session before travelling to Baku, the midfielder was moving freely enough to be considered for a spot on the plane.

Chelsea FC will be hoping that Kante will be fit enough to play a part in the crunch clash, with the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek already having been ruled out with long-term injuries.

The west London club head into the game looking to try and beat the Gunners and end Maurizio Sarri’s first campaign in charge with a trophy.

Chelsea FC will be out for revenge over Arsenal after the Gunners beat the Blues in the FA Cup final back in 2017 to deny them a domestic double under Antonio Conte.
