Kante Ruled Out of Chelsea’s Clashes with Wolves & Valencia.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has ruled N’Golo Kante out of his side’s upcoming clashes with Wolves and Valencia.

Chelsea visit Wolves on Saturday in their Premier League encounter before welcoming Spanish outfit Valencia to Stamford Bridge on Tuedsay in their opening Champions League game of the season.

The French midfielder has featured in just two league matches for Lampard’s side this season, having struggled with an ankle injury since the 1-1 draw with former club Leicester City last month.

And while Lampard says the France international is close to a return to action, he admitted that the next two games will come too soon for Kante as he is still “a week or so” away from full fitness.

“N’Golo is not fit,” the former Chelsea and England star told reporters ahead of the trip to Molineaux Stadium. “He still has issues with his ankle. The medical team are working with him.

“He is in a transition period and we are trying to get him on the pitch. He is doing some physical work but this game comes too soon for him.”
