Ruled out for Crystal Palace match

Ruled out for Crystal Palace match

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has reportedly been ruled out of action for the foreseeable future after sustaining a hamstring injury on global duty. The industrious midfielder was forced off in France's World Cup qualifying victory over Bulgaria on Saturday.

"Kante is going to do another scan next week to check if his situation is improving". The list of league games both players could miss includes trips to Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, as well as Watford at Stamford Bridge and Everton in the League Cup.

Fourth placed Chelsea are six points behind Manchester City after the champions lost 1-0 to the Premier League leaders in their last match before the global break.

Chelsea's defense of the Premier League title has been dealt a serious blow as Antonio Conte prepares to be without two of his key players for up to six weeks, reports say.

Tiemoue Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas would be Conte's strongest midfield pairing without Kante, and Danny Drinkwater, who hasn't yet featured for his new team since his deadline day move from Leicester City, is in contention for his debut having recovered from a calf problem.

"There wasn't really the right mixture (of players) for the way we wanted to play".

Wilshere, who he knows from his time in charge of the Three Lions, is one of those players who could do a solid job for Palace. "We may have to adapt some defenders into midfielders". As many of you would expect, I am expecting that Chelsea will win this game easily, even though they are away from home.

"I hope to have Morata back very soon, I hope for the next game", Conte said.
