Ngolo Kante’s new role under Sarri? The question every Chelsea Fan is asking


Chelsea’s midfield stalwart, N’Golo Kante, has since the arrival of Italian boss Maurizio Sarri, been deployed to  different roles.
The World Cup winning French international has been licenced to move further up in the middle of the park.
This, has seen him score Chelsea’s first league goal of the 2018/2019 football season against Hudderfield on Match day 1.
Kante featured with teammate, Jorginho, in the recent game against Arsenal, with the Italian surprisingly sitting deep to protect the back four(a role played by Kante throughout last season) Pedro, Morata and Alonso all scored as Chelsea defeated the North London side.
While Chelsea won both matches, the former Leicester city midfield had enviable match stats. Kante had three shots at goal. Completed 92 percent of his passes, won three tackles and made complete dribbles in style.
Blues Legend Pat Nevin was full of praise for the Frenchman in his interview.
“The question will be asked by many Chelsea fans, is it really a good idea to have so many attacking players on the field and also asking our best defensive midfielder, N’Golo Kante, to play that much further up the field, especially when we come to face the very best sides?” Nevin told Chelsea FC’s website.
“Time will tell but as I have suggested already on this page, Maurizio Sarri is unlikely to stray from his stated style.
“Kante himself looked incredible in his new role, making runs behind the Arsenal defence that any centre-forward would be proud of. It does leave Jorginho more often than not as the deepest midfielder and his best talents are clearly creating from there rather than covering defensively.”
