According to Chelsea Head Coach Graham Potter, French Midfielder N'Golo Kante might return to Chelsea squad next weekend against Everton in a Premier League game ahead of international break.
N'Golo Kante hasn't make any appearance for Chelsea in over 6 months as his last game for Chelsea was against Tottenham Hotspur in August last year. Chelsea replaced Thomas Tuchel with Graham Potter but, Graham Potter is yet to have the chance to field N'Golo Kante because the Midfield General has been unavailable since Potter was appointed.
Graham Potter has claimed in the past that N'Golo Kante won't be rushed back into action so that he can heal properly and return to full fitness.
On Friday afternoon, during his Pre-match Press conference ahead of the Premier league encounter against Leicester City that took place on Saturday afternoon at King Power Stadium, Graham Potter hinted that N'Golo Kante could return for Chelsea before the International.
The international break will commence next weekend but not before Chelsea hosts Everton in a Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge. This game could be N'Golo Kante's first ever appearance under Graham Potter as the England International has already hinted.
Just like many Chelsea Fans have been hitching for the return of N'Golo Kante, Graham Potter might also be enthusiastic towards the return of N'Golo Kante but, in my opinion, I don't think Chelsea should rush him.
The return of N'Golo Kante to Chelsea squad should be delay because of the upcoming international break. This is because if N'Golo Kante make any appearance for Chelsea before the International break, the Head Coach of the France National team, who's a big fan of N'Golo Kante, Didier Deschamps might invite the N'Golo Kante for France's games during the international break.
N'Golo Kante was a big miss for the France National team during the world Cup as the French Midfielder didn't join the Former reigning Champion for their Campaign in Qatar. With his imminent return, Didier Deschamps won't want to pass the opportunity to field N'Golo Kante again after about 7 months of absence.
