Kante fit to return for Chelsea at Spurs

N’Golo Kante has been passed fit to return for Chelsea against Tottenham.

The Frenchman has missed the past two matches after aggravating an ankle problem during the recent draw at Liverpool.

Kante has trained fully this week and will be included in the squad for Sunday’s derby. He is expected to start the game.

But Christian Pulisic remains sidelined with an ankle injury he recently suffered while playing for the United States.

“There are no fresh injury concerns, so good news,” said Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

“Christian is in individual training and trying to come back as fast as possible to team training, so he will not be in the squad.

“N’Golo is back – back in full shape and ready to play.”
