Chelsea expect to be without midfielder N'Golo Kante for three weeks due to the hamstring injury he suffered on global duty.

Speaking ahead of the trip across London to rock-bottom Crystal Palace, the Italian said: "We are going to do a scan next week to check his situation, to see if he's improving, but for sure he's got a hamstring problem. From the previous scan, maybe he will be out for around 20 or 21 days", Conte told reporters on Friday.

That would include two Champions League dates with Roma, Premier League matches against Watford and Bournemouth and a League Cup tie against Everton.

Indeed, Antonio Conte is also on the verge of entering the history books as the first manager to lead the club to six consecutive away wins on more than one occasion, another landmark that looks set to be achieved. You must pay great attention to understand the situation to see if this [second] scan is better than before.

"Danny is progressing well but is not ready yet". We must have patience with him and his calf problem.

"He is a big loss for us because we know very well the importance of Kante to our team", said Conte. We only have Tiemoue Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas [in midfield] and we have to approach seven games in one month.

The Eagles will also go into the weekend's clash hoping to replicate the feat they pulled off the last time the teams met, when the Selhurst Park outfit beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge back in April.

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