Kante had a hamstring issue in yesterday’s Premier League encounter.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed N’Golo Kante suffered an injury during Sunday’s draw with Tottenham.
The Frenchman tweaked his hamstring in the thrilling 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
And Tuchel has confirmed the injury does not look good.
Speaking after the game, Tuchel said: “It seems like a muscle injury, a hamstring. He said he feels it pretty strong, so not good.”
Tuchel’s side next face Leeds United at Elland Road next Sunday.
The Frenchman won the ball in Tottenham’s half before finding Raheem Sterling, with the England ace teeing up Reece James to score.
It is unknown how long Kante is out for but the club will have time to dip into the transfer market for another midfielder.
