Chelsea might be playing well as Maurizio Sarri’s Sarri-ball has taken the English Premier League by storm. The Blues have been dominating games and are yet to lose a game this season.
Despite Chelsea’s bright start to the season, a lot has been said about Sarri’s use of N’Golo Kante. Jorginho’s arrival from Napoli has forced Sarri to deploy Kante in a more forward role, and many have criticised Kante’s role in the team since the goalless draw against West Ham.
Kante who rose to fame for both Leicester City and Chelsea playing as a combative defensive midfielder plays in a more advanced midfield role which has seen him do less of his marking and tackling that earned him the recognition as the best defensive midfielder in the world.
However, Blues legend Pat Nevin believes that people are being harsh on Kante.
Nevin said: “The midfield in general is causing much debate after dropping the first points of the campaign.
“This is a bit harsh considering they are dominating games. Cesc I have mentioned.
“N’Golo Kante being less of a crucial central player now he has been moved higher and wider, not necessarily in the position that most suits his talents, is another debate.”
