Chelsea receive injury boost on 28-year-old star

Kante returns to individual training

Chelsea have received a boost on the injury front with midfielder N'Golo Kante returning to individual training with France ahead of their European qualifier against Turkey.

The 28-year-old picked up an adductor problem in the lead up to France's clash against Iceland at the weekend and it was initially suggested that he may be sidelined for a considerable period of time.

However, it appears that Kante has avoided any serious injury and he may not be far off from making a comeback after training aside from national teammates, Football.London reports.

Kante has been in-and-out of the starting lineup with the Blues this term and this has largely resulted from the fact that he has suffered multiple niggles in the early phase of the season.

Lampard has been willing to play Kante whenever he has been deemed fit but he may be extra cautious with the midfielder ahead of the Premier League clash against Newcastle United on October 19.
