N'Golo Kante was forced off with a hamstring injury in France's World Cup qualifying win over Bulgaria last week and could miss Chelsea's next six games.

The midfield pillar was replaced just before half time in the 1-0 victory

Kante, who won the PFA Player of the Year award last season, will be assessed by Chelsea's medical staff, with the club keen to get their man back to full fitness as quickly as possible.

The France international will definitely miss the Blues' Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on the weekend, but, if Chelsea's worst fears are to be confirmed, he may also be out for their next five following fixtures.
