The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been sweating on the fitness of N’Golo Kante over the last few days…
The Frenchman, of course, missed the Blues’ important game against Middlesbrough on Monday evening – though Conte’s side comfortably won the game nonetheless.
That being said, the Chelsea fans in the pub have still been longing for the return of Kante ahead of their next game against West Brom on Friday – and it appears as though their prayers have been answered.
As per the Evening Standard, N’Golo Kante has reportedly returned to training ahead of the game – and is set to be fit to face the Baggies in a game that could make Chelsea the Champions of England once again.
This is huge news for the Blues – with Kante undoubtedly their most important player this year. A maestro in the heart of the midfield, everything – both defensively and offensively – has gone through the Frenchman in recent months.
Antonio Conte will have a tough decision on his hands, though, given that Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas – two players that Kante will be forced to battle it out with for a starting berth – both played fantastically on Monday night.
