Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has come under criticism from fans and pundits in recent weeks after failing to replicate his Monaco form.

N’Golo Kante has urged his teammates to help get the best out of Bakayoko.

Kante told Standard Sport: “He is training hard and giving his best. We have to make him play in the best way.

“Is there more of a team responsibility to get the best out of him? Yes. But not just Tiemoue, for everyone. We have to work together for the good of the team, for trying to win games. That is what we train to do.

“Tiemoue played a good game (at West Ham), but at half-time the manager decided to change the tactics to put Pedro in because he is more offensive. That’s why he was substituted but he was doing well.”

Kante also revealed he is prepared to help Bakayoko adapt to English football.

Kante added: “I think he is having a good time now at Chelsea. He is a professional.

“If he needs advice, I can give it to him. But it is the same at every club – try to work in training, to understand what the coach wants and give your best in the game. It is the same everywhere.”
