Kante celebrates with team mates after scoring a goal

Chelsea are prepared to allow N'Golo Kante to miss the rest of the 2019-20 season if his fears over coronavirus persist, according to reports.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Henderson said: "I fully respect their opinion and their decision to do that".

"I think every 30 minutes we have a different slot and each slot is taken by a different coach at the club".

"Ultimately, if you don't feel comfortable or safe, you should not feel forced or pressured to come into work".

"I fully respect the lads that don't feel comfortable as of yet, and I hope that they respect my opinion and that of the other players who have come back".

"Everybody's situation is different but ultimately, for me, I feel very safe here at the training ground, otherwise I would not be here".
