Tuchel confirms Kante's availability for Burnley game

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that N'Golo Kante is available for selection ahead of the Premier League clash against Burnley.



The Frenchman has been absent for the past two league games with a hamstring problem, but he has now returned to full training.

Tuchel tried to sign Kante when he was the Paris Saint-Germain manager and he has openly admitted that he is a huge fan of the World Cup winner.

The German likes to play with a 'double-six' with two central midfielders and Kante could partner Jorginho in the centre of the park on Sunday.

The Blues are currently eighth on the Premier League table with 30 points, seven adrift of the Champions League places.

Their league form has been dreadful since early December. They have picked up only 10 points from the previous nine matches.

As a result, Frank Lampard was recently sacked from the head coach role and Tuchel now has the task of improving the club's fortunes.
