It’s half time in the FA Cup final, and Chelsea are going to have to mix things up.
Everything started so well for them. They put Arsenal under great pressure from the start, and were rewarded after 5 minutes when Christian Pulisic found the net.
But since then they’ve let Arsenal back into the game, and now the Gunners are really pressing. They got their equaliser through a penalty, and have grown in confidence ever since.
Frank Lampard is going to have to think very seriously about tactical changes at the break.
Could this be the moment for a glorious return for N’Golo Kante to the team, to help shore things up? That’s what tons of Blues fans on social media are demanding, as you can see in the Tweets embedded below:
This defence is in shambles once again need to bring Kante on

Kante has been a massive loss for us during this season.

Jorginho has been gasmasked. He looks shattered. Kante coming on would be good.

Kante with one leg can run the midfield better

Kante for Jorginho needed at half
— Aaron Briggs (@Aaron_Briggs1) August 1, 2020
Lampard pls there’s no use of Kante if he cant play Fa Cup final now.
— Sean. (@Nimisean) August 1, 2020
Kante and Odoi need to come on

An injured kante is still good at this point #FACupFinal

100000% Kante has to be on 2nd half, that must be the game plan Frank has.
— NiiNiiFC-BlueLionsTV (@NiiNiiFC) August 1, 2020
I think we should have brought in Kante

Kante and CHO have to come on for Jorginho and Mount..#FACupFinal
— TwoChelseaFans (@TwoChelseaFans) August 1, 2020
Think we might now change to a back 4 and put Kante on with possibly Jorginiho making way. Whatever we have hot to get some confidence and swagger back. We can do it
— del (@delblue70) August 1, 2020
These lot need Kante on
— Dani (@dxnii50) August 1, 2020
We need to get Kante on the pitch ASAP to add some stability.
— Evander Mokonyane (@evanderm_rsa) August 1, 2020
Go back 4 and get Kanté on 2nd half. This is unacceptable.
— Ruan (@FootyForThought) August 1, 2020
Bring General Kante at second half
