‘N’Golo, unfortunately, tested positive and he needs to quarantine and follow the government protocols,” revealed Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel in the press conference.

As Kante has to isolate for 10 days, he will be definitely absent on Saturday while Chelsea plays against Southampton in the Premier League. The 30-year-old is also likely to miss France’s match against Belgium in the Nations League on October 7.

The Blues will be also without Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount and Reece James while facing Juventus as the trio are still healing from injuries.
