The Blues are currently missing out on a place in the top four to  Leicester City  on goal difference, but Chelsea will now be looking to pick up maximum points from their next four games before travelling to Pep Guardiola's  Manchester City

He felt a pain in his adductor muscle," Deschamps said, quoted by  Goal "He had a feeling where he didn't feel comfortable to play.

Olivier Giroud's second-half penalty proved to be enough for Les Bleus in  Reykjavík to keep them level on points with Turkey at the top of Group H, with France extending their lead over Iceland to six points with three games remaining.

Although it's still unknown if  Kanté will be available when France take on Turkey, the midfielder should be available to return for  Chelsea Newcastle United , looking to pick up their fifth win in a row under their new manager across all competitions.
