Kante in but Kovacic out of Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City
The Blues midfield is lacking a key player, but they remain in good shape ahead of their clash at Wembley on Saturday evening
Thomas Tuchel has ruled out Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen ahead of the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley against Manchester City on Saturday evening – but N’Golo Kante is available.
Chelsea will have everyone else available for the match with Kante fit despite concerns over his workload, after completing 90 minutes against Porto in midweek.
Pep Guardiola has confirmed that all his players except Sergio Aguero are fit but “tired” after their Champions League win over Dortmund on Wednesday. The west London club’s manager offered a similar update ahead of kick-off.
