This is good news for Chelsea and the France team.
Away from the field since mid-August due to a hamstring injury, Ngolo Kanté returned to training with the Blues on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old international midfielder has not participated in a single meeting for a month and a half.
He had, in particular, had to forfeit the last gathering of the Blues marked by a massacre of defections from all positions.
Some lighter work for N'Golo!

A little less than two months before the start of the World Cup in Qatar (November 20 - December 18), his return will not fail to delight the tricolor staff.
At the top of his form, Kanté, a real metronome, remains, in fact, a preponderant element in the device of Didier Deschamps at a time when Paul Pogba operated on a lesion of the lateral meniscus of the right knee on September 5, remains uncertain for the World Cup.
Kanté had missed Chelsea's last six league games as well as the first two Champions League matches against Dinamo Zagreb (1-0) and Salzburg (1-1).
In his absence, the Blues, only 7th in the Premier League, changed training with the replacement of Thomas Tuchel by Graham Potter on September 8.
Kanté must now find rhythm and his place in the London midfield.
He could be in the squad this Saturday for the trip to Crystal Palace, or more likely on October 8 for the Wolverhampton reception.
