  • AFTER showing character to battle back against Bournemouth, Chelsea now turn their attention to the FA Cup.

    The Blues didn't have the best of weeks, as they were torn apart by Bayern Munich in the Champions League before stalemate on the South Coast.

    And on Tuesday they face a Liverpool side wounded by their first Premier League defeat of the campaign.

    In a boost though for Chelsea fans, N'Golo Kante does not want to leave this summer despite being constantly linked to the likes of Juventus and Real Madrid

    The 28-year-old's contract is up in the Summer of 2023, and unless there is a big change in his stance, Kante will at least see out the rest of his term at the club, according to reports.

    The French midfielder has played a key role in winning the World Cup with France, as well as winning a Premier League, Europa League and a FA Cup whilst playing for the West London club.

    While Ruben Loftus-Cheek is slowly coming back to first-team football, since recovering from a horrific injury during pre season which had ruled him out for just over 290 days missing 38 matches for The Blues.

    Loftus-Cheek made the bench against the Cherries but was an unused sub.

    On the transfer front, Chelsea are continuing to monitor Borussia Dortmund and England winger Jadon Sancho as they plot a potential Summer move.

    The 19-year-old has been a regular feature for the Bundesliga outfit scoring 17 times whilst also getting 18 assists across all competitions this season.
