Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that N’Golo Kante is nursing a minor hamstring injury.
The Frenchman suffered numerous injury concerns last term and he ended the campaign with only 28 appearances in all competitions.
He has avoided any major setbacks this season with 24 appearances already, but of late, his performances have been below-par.
Kante is currently nursing a minor hamstring problem, but he is also suspended for the Fulham clash after picking up his fifth yellow card.
The Blues are winless in the past three games and they could have a testing challenge against the Cottagers on the road.
The Blues are presently ninth on the table with 26 points, six adrift of the Champions League positions.
