 Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is expected to be fit to face AS Roma in Tuesday's Champions League group stage match, manager Antonio Conte said.

Kante, who missed Chelsea's last five matches with a hamstring injury, trained with the squad before they left for Rome and Conte will speak to the France international before deciding whether he will feature.

Midfielder Danny Drinkwater is also set to play after recovering from a calf problem and on the back of his first Premier League appearance for Chelsea as a late substitute against Bournemouth on Saturday.

"We had three starters out, but we have recovered Drinkwater and Kante. (Victor) Moses needs more time," Conte told a news conference on Monday.

"Kante trained with us, also before the game at Bournemouth.

"I was a player and I know very well after an injury, a bad injury, it is very important to listen to the player which are the sensation. For him and the team, Tuesday we try to make the best decision."

Chelsea, who top the Group C standings, will qualify for round of 16 with a victory at Roma.
