Chelsea boss Graham Potter has described midfielder N’Golo Kante as a top player for the club.
Kante has not played a single game under Potter at Chelsea as a result of a long spell on the sideline over injuries.
However, Potter said the combative midfielder could return from his long absence against Everton at the weekend.
During his press conference on Friday, Potter said: “N’Golo Kante has a chance of being back in the squad.
“Managers before me have spoken very highly of N’Golo because he’s a top, top player. He’s a huge miss to us.
“N’Golo Kante is N’Golo Kante. It’s great for us he is back and we have to be mindful he has a long injury.”
