- Frenchman N'Golo Kante is set to be out of action for Chelsea for up to four weeks
- The midfielder is currently undergoing treatment after sustaining hamstring injury while on international duty
- Kante has been impressive in the midfield for reigning champions Chelsea this season
Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has reportedly been ruled out for the rest of October 2017 following the injury he sustained while on international duty.
Kante is currently back at the Blues' training ground but he is undergoing treatment and could be out of action for three to four weeks.
The news will come as a big disappointment for Chelsea coach Antonio Conte considering the fact that N'Golo Kante has been superb this season in the midfield for Chelsea.
He is now set to miss Chelsea's trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday, October 14, and the Frenchman could also be out of the Blues' Champions League double-header against Italian side Roma.
Chelsea are still battling to cope with the absence of Spanish star Alvaro Morata who sustained severe injury in his club's defeat against Manchester City.
