Tuchel believes N’Golo Kante will be key in Chelsea reaching the Champions League final
N’Golo Kante has been one of the best players for his side and will be a key player at Stamford bridge in tonight’s game.
Thomas Tuchel has expressed his feelings about N’Golo Kante who has been one of the best players for his side. Kante has excelled in Chelsea’s midfield beside Jorginho. And Tuchel believes he will be key in Chelsea reaching the Champions League final.
The 30-year-old engine is set to start in midfield for Chelsea, in the absence of Mateo Kovacic who is out injured. Tonight he will have to deliver with Jorginho alone to try and get the upper hand on Real Madrid’s expected midfield three of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.
