The former Foxes lynchpin's absence against Arsenal was thought to be a tactical decision from Thomas Tuchel, although the Chelsea boss confirmed that Kante had been suffering from pain in his Achilles, but he joins Mateo Kovacic in the squad for the showpiece event.
However, Jorginho should continue in the engine room despite being largely at fault for Arsenal's winner on Wednesday night, while Billy Gilmour would continue there if Kante and Kovacic are not fit enough, but the former is still expected to get the nod.
With Cesar Azpilicueta likely to continue alongside Thiago Silva and Rudiger, Reece James should continue on the right-hand side, while former Leicester man Ben Chilwell hopes to get one over his former club on the left.
Christian Pulisic took a couple of blows against Arsenal and should make way for Hakim Ziyech - who scored the decisive goal against Manchester City in the semi-final - while a well-rested Timo Werner could lead the line ahead of his compatriot Kai Havertz.
Kepa Arrizabalaga's heroic save prevented Jorginho from scoring an own goal before Emile Smith Rowe tapped home on Wednesday, and Tuchel has confirmed that the Spaniard will start in goal over Edouard Mendy.
Chelsea possible starting lineup: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Ziyech, Mount; Werner
