Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is set to miss the Europa League final on Wednesday after suffering an injury setback.
The France international had sufficiently recovered from a hamstring injury to take part in training before the final, but he suffered a blow to his knee in a session on Saturday which forced him out of training.

Chelsea’s medical staff assessed the issue on Sunday afternoon but it is understood that their first impressions are far from promising.
It would be a major blow for the Blues to lose such an important player, but in Arsenal’s case, this news will be music to the ears of the Gunners and their supporters.
A win in Baku would secure Champions League football for the north Londoners after they missed out on it originally having finished fifth; it is safe to say that this is a huge game for Unai Emery and the club’s future.
Let’s see how the Arsenal supporters on Twitter reacted to the news of Kante’s possible absence for the showpiece event…
If the news is true that Kante will miss the Europa League final, we have to take advantage & win comfortably. They will be without there two best midfielders.
On top of missing out on top 4 to Chelsea, losing the final without there best midfielders would be humiliating.

If the rumours that Kanté won't play in the final are true, it's a huge advantage for us. He is probably the second most important player in the entire Chelsea-squad after Hazard. Neither Kovacic, Jorginho or Barkley are good definsively. Auba and Laca could cauce them problems

Big plus for us if he misses out

Kante got injured in training and he’s out of the Europa League final apparently. So that’s CHO, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Rudiger and now Kante out of the final. If we don’t take advantage, we deserve to lose

So now it's being reported both Kanté & Jorginho took knocks in the training session.
