Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is hopeful N’Golo Kante will be fit for the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United.

The World Cup winner has missed Chelsea’s last two games and Lampard has ruled him out of Wednesday’s clash with Norwich City at Stamford Bridge.

But Lampard says he could be available for the July 19 meeting with United at Old Trafford.

“He is not fit for Norwich,” said Lampard.

“But he has a chance for the semi-final.”
