Confirmed: N'Golo Kante to miss Man United clash

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante hasn't recovered from the hamstring injury he picked up on July 4.

Earlier, Frank Lampard hoped the Frenchman would be available for selection.

Chelsea will face Man United in the FA Cup semis on Sunday.

Frank Lampard has confirmed N'Golo Kante will miss the FA Cup semi-final tie against Manchester United on Sunday.

"The squad is okay but N'Golo Kante won't be fit for the match," the boss told the reporters on Friday.

"Other than that we have a few people with a few little niggles which we’ll monitor over the next 24 hours and then we will be ready to go."

Kante hasn't featured for the Blues since he picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 win against Watford on July 4.

Earlier, Lampard claimed the midfielder 'had a chance' of playing in the cup tie but now it appears Kante's situation is more serious than it looked before.
