Lampard reveals when Kante will return from injury

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has revealed that midfielder, N’Golo Kante will return from injury before the international break later this month.

Kante has endured a frustrating season so far, with a couple of injuries limiting his game time.

The France international has not featured for Lampard’s side since their 4-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League at the start of October this year.

The 28-year-old also missed Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Watford on Saturday, Lampard was quoted by Sport Review as saying: “Kante is hopefully going to join in training in the next two or three days.

“Hopefully, he will be back before the international break.”

Lampard added: “I would have liked to have given Jorginho and Kovacic a rest against Man United because of the work they are putting in.

“I couldn’t because of N’Golo, Ross and Ruben is long term. I couldn’t make those changes I wanted to but it is what it is I suppose.”
