N’Golo will still start, he’s better than every other midfielder even with an injury.

Kante was phenomenal in Chelsea’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Liverpool, the Frenchman will be a massive miss for the Blues against Norwich.
Daniel Farke’s side will be raring to go after an impressive 3-1 victory against Newcastle, Canaries star Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick in the clash and the Blues will need to keep a close eye on the Finland international.
