N'Golo Kante has won the Premier League in both of his seasons in England - with Leicester and then Chelsea

Chelsea say midfielder N'Golo Kante will be missing for another 20 days after picking up a hamstring injury on international duty.

The 26-year-old limped out of France's 1-0 win against Bulgaria last weekend and will be out of action until next month.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says the midfielder will need a scan.

Fellow midfielder Danny Drinkwater is "progressing well" from his calf injury but is not ready to make his debut.

There was a boost for Conte with the news that striker Alvaro Morata should be fit to face Roma on Wednesday.
