Chelsea fans aren’t feeling too confident after N’Golo Kante was forced off the pitch after only 10 minutes against Manchester United.
The Blues were without the Frenchman earlier in the season but have welcomed him back into the fold of late.
However, despite the recent winter break, Kante only lasted 10 minutes during tonight’s clash with United.
The midfielder hobbled off after taking a knock in the opening stages, leading to a social media meltdown from Chelsea supporters.
“Could it get much worse,” one wrote.
“We need to have a look at our fitness and medical team. We’ve had so many injuries this season,” one said.
“Congrats Bayern,” a third added.
“Cheers sons crying now,” said a fourth.

“Winter break worked well…” commented another.
“End the season already,” one said.
Kante said last week the winter break had left him feeling refreshed and raring to go for the second-half of the season.
“I spent time with family and friends at home in Paris, just chilling,” he said.
