The France international has been used sparingly so far this season following a groin injury from which he had only recently fully recovered.

Kante was restricted to two 45 minute bursts against Tottenham and Aston Villa earlier this month, while he was taken off on the hour mark during Saturday’s disappointing 1-0 defeat against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

The 30-year-old will now miss tomorrow’s heavyweight clash against the Italian giants, as well as Saturday’s Premier League match against Southampton.

Tuchel will also be without Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount, as well as Reece James, who also looks set to miss the trip to St Mary’s with an ankle injury
