Chelsea Midfielder Back In Full Training Ahead Of The Europa League Final: Big Boost For Sarri?

According to a recent report by Football.London, Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is back in full training and could be ready to return to first-team action in the UEFA Europa League final versus Arsenal later this month. The Pensioners have already lost Ruben Loftus-Cheek to injury ahead of the season-defining showdown at Baku, Azerbaijan.

Thus, Kante’s return will be a welcome bit of news for everyone associated with the West London club. Maurizio Sarri would hope that all of his best players can be back for the showpiece event in Europe. 

Kante’s Glorious Career In English Football 

The France international has often been played out of position by Sarri, but he has still managed to do a decent job as a box to box midfielder. The 28-year-old has made 52 appearances for Chelsea this term, scoring five goals while grabbing four assists across multiple competitions. Kante has won the Premier League twice with Leicester City and Chelsea, so he knows what it takes to perform at his best when the stakes are high on the pitch.

The former SM Caen workhorse also helped France win the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia last summer which goes to show how integral he has been for both club and country.

What Does The French Midfielder Offer On The Pitch?

The French talent can be considered as one of the best defensive midfielders in world football. Kante can read the game well, which enables him to make some crucial interceptions for his team. He has also added more goals and assists to his game as Sarri has used him in an advanced role in midfield.

Kante’s Possible Return: Big Boost For The Pensioners?

Kante’s availability for the Europa League final will undoubtedly be a massive boost for the Pensioners as he has the potential to decide the fate of the contest. Sarri is in dire need of winning a trophy so that he can justify his position at the club. The Italian manager is currently facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge so he will need his best players like Kante to step up and make the difference against the Gunners at the Olympic Stadium.

The West London outfit has already lost the League Cup final against Manchester City earlier in this campaign. However, the Europa League final will be a different challenge as it will be a fierce London derby between two teams desperate to add some silverware to their trophy cabinet. Hence, having Kante back could tip the scales in Chelsea’s favour at Baku, Azerbaijan.
