Pre-season: Kante Returns In Chelsea’s Draw With Monchengladbach

Lampard Hits Out Chelsea Fans' Chants

Chelsea celebrating goal against Reading/Sky Sports

N’Golo Kante returned from injury as Chelsea came from two goals down to draw 2-2 in a friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

Alassane Plea opened the scoring after an error from Kepa Arrizabalaga before Jonas Hofmann made the most of some disorganised defending to give Gladbach a two-goal advantage at half-time.

Yann Sommer made a string of excellent stops to keep Chelsea at bay but his goal was eventually breached by Tammy Abraham, who coolly slotted home from the penalty spot in the 59th minute.

The Blues received a boost ahead of their opening Premier League match against Manchester United next weekend by N’Golo Kante’s return from a knee injury and Barkley ensured they did not sign off their pre-season campaign with a loss when he converted a late spot-kick.
