Team train before flying south
news Mon 30 Oct 2017
N’Golo Kante has taken part in the final training session prior to the squad travelling to Italy for the Champions League group stage game against Roma.
The midfielder has not played since coming off in a France international at the beginning of the month and missed the past five Chelsea games, including the 3-3 draw in our home meeting with the Serie A side.
‘I hope so. He could be ready,’ he responded. ‘I know very well the importance of this player. I want to be sure he is ready. I hope to have him in this game, but I prefer to not take this type of risk. If he is ready, he plays.’
The squad flies to Rome this afternoon and Conte and one of the players will speak at a media conference at the Stadio Olimpico this evening at 6pm UK time.
