Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was seen in training on Thursday for the first time since suffering a serious hamstring injury in October, ruling him out of the World Cup.
The Blues take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime with both teams hugely underperforming in the Premier League this season.
Kante has been a key fixture in the Chelsea team since his move from Leicester in 2016, winning the Premier League and Champions League in his time at Stamford Bridge.
The France World Cup winner has missed just one game against Liverpool in his entire Premier League career, a match after the Reds had already secured the league title.
According to Tribalfootball, Kante, who is out on contract at Stamford Bridge in the summer, has been undergoing individual work at Cobham and it is yet to be seen whether he is fit enough to travel to Anfield at the weekend.
