Lampard was without Kante for almost all of pre-season but brought him back to the bench for the opening game of the season against Manchester United. Kante came on against United and injured his ankle, but played through it during his side's Super Cup match against Liverpooland a home league game againstLeicester City.
However, Kante was forced to sit outChelsea's 3-2 win at Norwich Cityon Saturday.

"It is a difficult one. He has had four years of constantly playing," Lampard said at Carrow Road. "[The] injury from the Europa League final has affected his pre-season. Then he hurt himself against Man United.
"We are trying to get him through it. Today was too painful. The international break will be great for him to get the injury right. It would be great for everybody [if Kante stays] because he’s been playing game after game after game."
