Chelsea gets fitness boost against Roma as Ngolo Kante returns to the side.


Antonio Conte is happy to get a good news from the medical team after reports of Kante’s availability for the Champions league tie tonight.

Chelsea can move five points clear in Group C with a win at Stadio Olimpico, where both of Roma’s league defeats have come this term.

Kante has been sidelined for almost a month with a hamstring injury sustained on France duty, while Drinkwater only made his Premier League debut for the club as a late substitute in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Bournemouth.

Conte have been in hot waters lately after back to back loses in the Premier league to City and Crystal Palace but Chelsea has redeemed themselves after winning three games in a row.
