Kante could miss six games through injury

He's now being evaluated by Chelsea's medical staff, but reports earlier this week from France were expecting him to be out at least as long as Morata (2-3 weeks), if not longer (all of October and maybe a day or two extra).

The Italian's team has slipped to six points behind joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester United, both on 19 points after seven games.

Early suggestions, according to the Daily Telegraph, are that Kante could be out for at least three weeks, which would see him miss crucial Champions League games.

Kante is now sidelined with a hamstring injury picked up whilst playing for France and Chelsea are waiting for details of how long the player, who was recently included in the 30 man Ballon D'Or shortlist, is out for.

Kante picked up the issue while playing for France in their World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria last weekend after he was forced off in the 34th minute clutching his hamstring.

Saturday's Premier League clash with bottom-of-the-table Palace should present few problems despite the absence of Kante, but the European clashes against in-form Roma could prove a greater challenge without the former Leicester City player's influence.

Alvaro Morata enjoyed some personal downtime with his wife Alice Campello on Wednesday morning as the Chelsea striker continues to work on his fitness levels.

While on worldwide duty with France, Kante has been hit with a similar injury.

Conte has been at odds with the Chelsea hierarchy over transfers on a number of occasions during his tenure in west London and has never seemed overly happy with the club's business.
