N’Golo Kante picked up an injury in the 3-0 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge early this month and hasn’t played for the Blues since then.
Ahead of Sunday’s decisive fixture at home to Wolves, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed Kante is in with a chance of returning to the team.
Chelsea need to avoid defeat against Wolves to secure Champions League qualification for next season.
“There is a possibility he will feature,” Lampard said.
“He has trained for the first time towards a match pace this morning, so it’s a decision I’ll have to make, talking with him and the medical team, to see if he’s ready to start.”
