Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante missed both the loss to Juventus and the win against Southampton after testing positive for Covid-19.

The 30 year old midfielder wasn’t called up to the France national team due to his health.

“N’Golo has symptoms but not a lot of symptoms, so he’s okay,” Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said about Kante.

“I don’t want to go into more details. He’s okay. He’s doing well.

“He was concerned about it [in the past], and he did everything not to get it. Unfortunately, he tested positive but we care about him, like we care about every player. We’re in touch with him every single day. The doctors are in touch with him and he has our advice and our support, and he is in a good way.”

Kante could be available for the game against Brentford after the international break as he trained with the rest of his teammates that didn’t travel for the international break.
