Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante missed the 1-0 loss at Manchester City on Sunday after passing out in the dressing room last Friday.

Ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed Kante is fit to play.

“N’Golo is fine,” Conte said. “He trained the whole week. He’s in good form. He’s fine.

“Last week, on Friday, it was very cold. After the training session he passed out briefly in the dressing room.

“The doctor brought him to have many check-ups, to understand his physical condition. But it was all clear.

“I think that on Sunday he was well, but at the same time it was right not to take a risk, to give him the opportunity not to play and to rest. He’s OK. Every check-up is OK, it is perfect.”
