Chelsea defensive midfielder N’golo Kante has once again stressed the fact that he believes the London Blues will achieve success under Frank Lampard.
N’Golo Kante says that the side is slowly but surely adapting to Lampard’s philosophy and will be winning silverware. The Pensioners probably had one of the most successful transfer window businesses of all times
Marina Granovskia pulled a lot of strings to make sure an abundance of world class talents reached Stamford Bridge. Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva – all in one summer window.
The Blues have started confidently this year and are currently sitting at 3rd place behind Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. The London derby on Sunday ended in a lackluster goalless draw as both teams looked cautious of not letting points slip.
N’golo Kante remains adamant that Chelsea will fight for top silverware
Chelsea has improved drastically from last year when it comes to their defense department. Eduoard Mendy at goal with Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma in front of him has made a real difference in results.
Speaking to the Chelsea media cell he said,
“We are happy to have good momentum. I think it’s a result of a lot of work and effort put together to get the results we want. I think so far we are doing well and we need to keep going in this way to have a great season.
N’Golo Kante also spoke about the importance of the summer signings in the current squad. They’ve added both quality and depth to the club as the club spent 200 million in the last window.
“The players who came understand what we want to do in Chelsea. They bring a new energy, they are positive. They want to win and achieve good things at Chelsea and this helps to bring a fresh ambition in the squad and they settled very well in the squad.”
A lot of Chelsea’s success also depends on how N’Golo Kante dictates the midfield. Frank Lampard has done well to realize that Kante’s best position is his defensive one. It’s his natural position and is the only way to get the best out of him.
The French international has done extremely well in his defensive midfield role and is currently leading the stat charts when it comes to successful interceptions and tackles. It’s worth remembering that N’Golo Kante was a huge factor in determining the success of both Leicester City and Chelsea when they won the leagues.
Chelsea’s next match is in Champions League as they face Sevilla. Chelsea and Sevilla are level on points but Chelsea on goal difference. This match is very crucial for both teams and it will be vital for finishing top of the group.
