Tuchel: The Real Reason I Didn’t Play N’Golo Kante Against Everton


Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was injured again on Sunday and missed the Blues’ Premier League away match against Everton (May 1).

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel explains why N’Golo Kante did not start in his team’s 1-0 Premier League loss to Everton on Sunday.
Tuchel left Kante out of the team for the match against Everton at Goodison Park, where Richarlison’s lone goal secured all three points for Frank Lampard’s side.

According to the German after the squads were released, Kante has a minor injury.

“He was taken off after 80 minutes at Old Trafford and is still in pain.” It’s only a mild ailment. Tuchel stated, “Hopefully, he will be back in the next match, but not today.”

“One thing is clear: N’Golo is an important player because he possesses exceptional, one-of-a-kind talents,” he continued. He’s a one-of-a-kind player who provides us with something no one else can. Due to injuries and illness, he is having difficulty maintaining consistency, which is also the cause of our inconsistency.

“We’ve been missing him for a lot of games, and now he’s fasting because of his faith and views, so that could be another factor.”
Kante will now aim to feature for Chelsea in their next Premier League match on May 7 against Wolves.
