Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante isn’t back to full fitness yet following his performance in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Nevin said on the Matchday Live program: “When you go 2v2 at the back, they can flood the midfield, and they won the midfield.

“That’s why our midfield was overrun.

“And I’m not sure that N’Golo was fit. That was a long, long way from N’Golo we’re used to.

“I can only see that as him not being 100 percent fit.”

Kante struggled with a groin injury at the start of the season and only returned at half-time against Tottenham Hotspur.
