Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists Chelsea are in a good position this season because of N’Golo Kante.
Wenger said: “N’Golo Kante has made a huge impact in that team (Chelsea). Its not a coincidence they are in the position they are and Leicester were in that position last year.
“Maybe that defeat to us was a wakeup call, they changed things in the right way, they have benefited by not being in Europe.
“That has given Conte time to prepare and get to know better the players.
“The integration of Kante has had a huge impact.”
