Claude Puel says Southampton will welcome back their very own N'Golo Kante when Oriol Romeu returns from a two-match suspension at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
"Kante is a very important player for this team because he does fantastic work to recover the ball and start the play,” Puel said ahead of tonight's trip to Chelsea.
"N’Golo has the same qualities and the same play as Romeu with us. Without Kante it’s difficult for Chelsea and without Romeu it’s difficult for us. I think he’s not far from Kante."
