Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed N’Golo Kante is ready to return to action.

The French midfielder has been sidelined since the international break with a hamstring injury and has missed the Blues last four fixtures.

But Conte has revealed he is waiting for the ‘right moment’ to bring back the 25-year-old, which could mean Kante could return for the November 5 clash with Manchester United.

“He’s progressing well,” said the Chelsea boss after the 2-1 win over Everton on Wednesday night. “I am happy, I saw him in a good physical condition.

“We need to keep calm and find the right moment to put him in the team. Now it will be very easy to tell him to play. We must pay attention and to find the best solution for him. He’s ready.”
