West Ham could be handed a blow this weekend, with N’Golo Kante reportedly in line to return to action for Chelsea.
The France international has established himself as one of the best midfielders in world football in recent years, winning the Premier League title with both Leicester and Chelsea, and also winning the World Cup with France.
Kante has missed the games against Manchester United and Watford, with the Blues drawing the first and winning the second.
However, a new report from London News Online claims that Kante is in line to return to the midfield this weekend as the Blues look to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table.
That would be a blow for the Irons, who are looking for a first win since the return from the international break, having lost to both Wolves and Manchester City and been held to a frustrating draw by Brighton in midweek.
