N’Golo Kante will miss three or four weeks of the season according to the first well sourced bits of news about the injury he picked up against Tottenham yesterday.
L’Equipe in his native France are the publication with the scoop.
That’s actually pretty mild compared to how it could have been, and all being well he should be up and running without too much damage to our results.
His performances in the two opening games of the season were excellent. Conor Gallagher was his replacement yesterday and will probably start in his stead in the weeks to come.
He’s not a natural fit as Kante’s alternative, given he’s got more attacking instincts at times, and less defensive nous. But Leeds, Leicester, Southampton, West Ham, Fulham are all winnable with an attacking setup.
It looks like it will be a race to get him back in time to be fit for the game against Liverpool on the 18th
