Injury Update: Chelsea confirmed that N’Golo Kante had suffered Injury on International duty



Chelsea have confirmed that N’Golo Kante will return to the club after sustaining a ‘small hamstring injury’ whilst on international duty with France.

Kante featured for the entire 90 minutes as the world champions were held to a 1-1 by Ukraine in their opening game of World Cup qualification, though the midfielder will play no further part for Les Bleus this month after sustaining a minor injury.

The 29-year-old will miss fixtures with Kazakhstan and Bosnia and Herzegovina after returning to the Premier League side for treatment on the problem, Chelsea confirming the news following scans on the midfielder’s issue.
