Chelsea Coach to speak with N’Golo Kante efore selecting XI Against Roma

Conte to speak with Kante ahead of champions league match against roma

Antonio Conte said he will speak to N’Golo Kante before deciding whether to include the France international in Chelsea’s starting XI to face Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Kante has been sidelined since picking up a hamstring injury on France duty at the beginning of October, but trained with the first-team squad at Cobham prior to Saturday’s win over Bournemouth and again on Monday, raising hopes that he could be fit to feature at Stadio Olimpico.

But with a crucial Premier League match against Manchester United to come on Sunday, Conte is wary of rushing Kante back into action before he feels ready.

“I think it’s very important, in this moment, to speak with the player and then see his sensation [feeling],” Conte said.

“I was a player and you know very well that, after an injury, above all a muscular problem — a bad injury — it’s very important to listen to the player and what are his sensations and then make the best decision for him, for the team. For sure, tomorrow, we’ll try and make the best decision.”
