Chelsea FC(N) vs Arsenal - Chelsea wait on N’Golo Kante

N’Golo Kante has a 50 per cent chance of being fit for Chelsea’s Europa League final with Arsenal in Baku.

Chelsea will give France’s World Cup-winning midfielder as long as possible to prove his fitness, with head coach Maurizio Sarri admitting his absence would be a “problem”.

Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley will start in midfield should Kante fail to recover in time.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has yet to decide whether retiring Petr Cech will make a farewell appearance against his former club.

The goalkeeper has started every knockout match en route to the final in Baku, where midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan decided against travelling due to his country Armenia’s dispute with Azerbaijan.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), right-back Hector Bellerin and defender Rob Holding (both knee) are out, but striker Danny Welbeck travelled with the squad after sustaining a broken ankle in November.
