If Chelsea won on Sunday, on the lawn of Aston Villa, the Blues saw N’Golo Kanté again feel his knee.
The Blues resumed their march forward. Forced to a draw by Everton then on the lawn of Wolverhampton, Chelsea indeed took advantage of his trip to Birmingham to return to victory. Led by Aston Villa against the run of the game, Thomas Tuchel’s men finally won 3-1 and therefore remain six lengths from Manchester City.
The German coach nevertheless made a face at the end of the meeting. Consequence of the new injury of N’Golo Kanté. The tricolor world champion indeed seems to have been the victim of a relapse to his knee and was released to go out on time. The former Caennais should undergo exams on Monday but seems right now already forfeited for the next Blues deadlines.
