The Blues were brilliant in our Super Cup loss to Liverpool on Wednesday night and our best player on the pitch against Liverpool was N’Golo Kante.

Kante played for 120 minutes against Liverpool on Wednesday night despite being a doubt for the match.

According to former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino, Kante offers more than just energy to the Chelsea team.

Cascarino insists Kante is brilliant playing in a deeper role and also playing higher up the pitch too, as his ability to read an opponent is superb.

“N’Golo Kante’s energy is extraordinary but he offers so much more than fitness,” former striker Cascarino told the Times.

“It’s the way he darts around the pitch, he’s like an empty crisp packet in the park, flying around all over the place.

“Lampard hasn’t moved him back into a solely defensive role, Kante was still pushing up the pitch and pinched the ball on the halfway line for Chelsea’s opening goal.

“Yes he’s brilliant when your team is camped on the edge of their box but he’s great higher up the pitch too, as his ability to read an opponent is superb.

“People don’t realise how important tackling is in attack as well as defence.”
