The England international has established himself as a key player at Stamford Bridge. He has made 171 appearances in all competitions to date and has found the net 30 times.

Midfielder blow

The Blues have been dealt a blow ahead of their clash against AC Milan tonight. They will be ‘without’ midfielder N’Golo Kante again, as per a report by BBC Sport, which is a blow.

He has suffered a reaction to his current hamstring injury and isn’t ready to return just yet. The former Leicester City man hasn’t played since the 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur in mid-August.
