About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Chelsea manager Lampard positive Kante will face Lilleby Freddie Taylor24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed N’Golo Kante is a chance to face Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday night.Injuries have disrupted Kante all season, with a hamstring niggle the latest ailment that caused him to miss Saturday’s win over Brighton.But the World Cup winner returned to training on Tuesday and Lampard was confident he could play against the Ligue 1 outfit.”He trained this morning and he got through training okay,” said Lampard.”He is still one we have to assess in the morning but we are positive he will be fit to play.”The injury doesn’t relate to the Europa League final. What that injury did do, regardless of whether he played that game, was meant he had a broken pre-season.”It’s a slight domino effect. The main injury is now feeling good, but he’s probably got a couple of niggles since that, and a tackle at Manchester United in the first game that affected him on the ankle.”There’s a bit of bad luck in there as well. Everyone is working towards getting him regularly fit so he can play continuous games, and I’m hoping that’s coming really soon.”

He is not a target man, he is a man of movement,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.”I do not think he is a pure nine. If Ole is going to play him as he did today then I think he is the perfect player for him.”He’s young but he is experienced. With 21 years he probably has more matches than some players who are 24, 25. For me he is potentially a very good player, in some models and in some positions.”As a number nine I don’t think he has the 30 goals a season in him. I don’t think he can get better as a target man. To be better as a target man is difficult for him.”
