Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante health scare dismissed after collapsing in training

Posted: 6 March 2018 Time: 12:00

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has been officially cleared from a heart scare which resulted in the tireless midfielder missing their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Kante was a notable omission from the Blues squad that toiled away at the Etihad, in one of the most insipid displays from the reigning Champions in recent memory.

Antonio Conte's side failed to register a single shot on target and their inspirational midfielder who's become a key figure in the Italian's starting XI was sorely missed.

It's now been revealed the France international fainted at the club's training ground on Friday during a routine session and after an assessment from the medical team, it was decided the 26-year-old would not be risked against the Citizens.

But the club have now confirmed the diminutive midfielder returned to training on Monday afternoon and will likely start against Crystal Palace for their Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon.
