Chelsea has had a difficult season, with many injuries, including Ngolo Kante. The Blues midfielder suffered a hamstring injury against Tottenham Hotspur on August 14, last year.
After undergoing surgery, the French international has been battling an injury. The player is expected to return to light training before the end of February, and he will join Potter’s squad in early March.
Kante has yet to play for Potter, who has led Chelsea to the lowest win rate in club history (36%).
Chelsea has only won two of the last ten Premier League games, with 2-0 victories over Bournemouth and a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
The return of Kante is expected to reverse the team’s poor form and raise hopes of a champions league spot next season, which appears unlikely given the team’s current position of 10 with 31 points in 23 games played.
