Victor Moses and his other Chelsea teammates were petrified when Frenchman N’golo Kante collapsed during training on Friday before the weekend game against Manchester City.
According to The Telegraph, when Kante fainted and his colleagues were worried the 26-year-old had suffered a heart problem when he dropped to the floor in front of them.
The incident happened at the club’s Cobham training base as Antonio Conte’s side prepared for Sunday’s game at the Etihad.
Conte did not list the midfielder for the Man City game and the club reported the player was dropped due to illness.

A doctor was quickly at Kante’s side within moments of him falling to the ground and he was later sent for cardiology tests that found nothing out of the ordinary.
Kante was cleared to travel to Manchester with the rest of the squad but then fell ill on Sunday morning and the decision was taken not to risk playing him.
The former Leicester man reported for training as normal on Monday and encountered no problems.
