Chelsea fans desperate for N’Golo Kante to start against Man United

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed on Friday that N’Golo Kante was in line to return to the team for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Kante, who is valued at £50m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has not turned out for the Premier League champions since picking up a thigh problem while representing France during last month’s international break.

Chelsea have won their last two in the league, but they lost 3-0 at Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and it would be fair to say that the Blues have missed Kante bossing the middle of the park.

Conte was wary of confirming that Kante would be in the XI for the United match, but all of the signs point to the Frenchman taking to the field.

Chelsea’s official Twitter account posted a summary of Conte’s quotes on Friday, and one tweet was directed towards the fitness of Kante.

In all honestly, the Chelsea fans are not too concerned whether the former Leicester City midfielder is fully fit this weekend, they just are desperate for him to be in the first XI.
