New Chelsea gaffer, Graham Potter, has explained that two key players will miss the match day 8 eight encounter with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
Potter revealed that Defensive Midfielder, N’Golo Kante and goalie, Edouard Mendy will not feature in his side’s Premier League tie against Crystal Palace due to injury.
Potter also provided the latest update on Marc Cucurella and Carney Chukwuemeka ahead of the Crystal Palace clash at Selhurst Park.
“They [Mendy and Kante] are not available,” Potter said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.
“They are absolutely fine in terms of coming through the rehab stages. NG has been on the grass with the team but not really full training.
He added, “We’ve got a bit of illness with Marc Cucurella and Carney. Apart from that, everybody is fit.”
