Antonio Conte has confirmed that Chelsea star N'Golo Kante is in contention for Sunday's clash with Manchester United, though will only select him if he's definitely fully recovered.

He continued: 'Honestly if I wanted to risk him I could do this against Bournemouth, I could do this against Roma.

Elsewhere, the likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater were added to a midfield unit which lost Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.

Chelsea players are under pressure - and their manager has been linked with the axe, but former Chelsea player Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has offered his support to the boss and claimed that he should be in the job for as long possible and anyone that says otherwise is wrong.

Matic will reunite with Conte and his former Chelsea team-mates when United travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho, the United manager, has made a habit of making his club's home ground a fortress. You know very well we are talking about an important player'.
