Thomas Tuchel confirms big injury boost ahead of Tottenham clash
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that N'Golo Kante is available for the Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Frenchman picked up an ankle injury against Liverpool last month which forced him to withdraw from international duty.
The midfielder has missed two games for the Blues this month, but Tuchel has confirmed that he is set to return for the London derby.
He said: "No fresh injury concerns. Christian is trying to come back as fast as possible but is not in the squad. N'Golo is in full shape and ready to play."
The Blues have made a terrific start to the Premier League campaign with three wins and one draw from their opening four matches.
They are scheduled to face Spurs on the road on Sunday, and are widely regarded as favourites with the injury crisis for their rivals.
Spurs could be without five players due to injuries. Son Heung-min, Ryan Sessegnon, Eric Dier, Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura are doubtful.
