The fact that Kante managed to train at all shows that his injury isn’t too serious, something that’ll definitely come as a boost for Frank Lampard and Co.
Kante has been a key part of Chelsea’s side these past few years, thus him being injured would not have been a good thing for the club, and their fans, to hear.
The French international has already sat out four games in all competitions this term due to injury, and a couple of days ago, it seemed like this number was set to increase given his withdrawal from France vs Iceland.
However now, it seems like the Blues can have some renewed hope in regards to them seeing the midfielder being declared fit for their clash against Newcastle next weekend.
