Antonio Conte has provided us with the most significant injury boost we could possibly ask for be confirming that N’Golo Kante is ready to return to action, report the Metro.
Kante suffered a hamstring injury while on international duty with France, and the Premier League champions’ form took a drastic turn for the worse without having him available for selection. However, after back-to-back victories, Chelsea look to have found some stability in the absence of the former Leicester City midfielder – and now he’s set to return.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is quoted by the Metro confirming that Kante is making good progress as he continues to recover:
“He’s progressing well, I am happy, I saw him in a good physical condition.”
The Italian added that now it is important not to rush him back and to think carefully about when it would be most sensible to bring him back into the starting eleven, as the Metro report:
“We need to keep calm and find the right moment to put him in the team. Now it will be very easy to tell him to play. We must pay attention and to find the best solution for him. He’s ready.”
Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on November 5th. It’s essential that Kante is ready for that game, as it could prove to be a crucial six-pointer in the title race.
