Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been out injured since picking up a hamstring injury while on international duty.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed the result of Kante’s second scan was better than the first. Conte also revealed Kante could be available for the game against Manchester United with the midfielder now working on his fitness.
“I hope to have him back very soon,” Conte said of Kante.
“He’s progressing well. The scan was better than before.
“N’Golo has started to work, not with the group but to find a good fitness.”
When asked if Kante would be fit to face Manchester United, Conte added: “It could be an option.
“But honestly… if Kante is available before Manchester United and the game against Roma, I’ll be very happy.”
