Chelsea handed a huge injury boost ahead of Liverpool clash; See who’s back in the squad. This is an absolute shocker as many people do not expect this to be true that the Midfielder is back in the squad but he is.
N’Golo Kante back in Chelsea training
Chelsea star N’Golo Kante is now back in first team training, having missed the last five months of action with a hamstring problem.
The France international last played for the Blues in their 0-0 draw at home to Tottenham in August, when Thomas Tuchel was still in charge.
It was originally anticipated that he may be able to return in October, but the 31-year-old suffered a setback and was forced to undergo surgery.
As one of the top midfielders in the Premier League since his move to Leicester in 2015, Kante is a crucial cog in Chelsea’s system when available, and his return will no doubt reinvigorate Chelsea’s midfield moving forward.
Whether he is deemed fit to play a part against Liverpool remains to be seen, although the Blues may be cautious with his return to action given his lengthy absence.
