Kante trains with Chelsea squad ahead of Lille game


N’Golo Kante trained with the rest of the Chelsea squad on the eve of their Champions League game against Lille.

The French midfielder, previously troubled by knee and ankle problems, was left out for Saturday’s 2-0 win against Brighton because of a minor hamstring strain.

Chelsea are hopeful Kante will return for Wednesday’s match, but Antonio Rudiger is still out with a groin injury.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is due to speak at a news conference at around 5.15pm UK time.
