N’Golo Kante returned to the starting lineup for Chelsea in the 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
Kante had been away due to injury but proved how essential he can be to the Chelsea squad with his vibrant performance against Liverpool on Sunday. It was the 28-year-old who scored a 71st minute goal that pushed Chelsea to go on and fight for a comeback.
Kante has revealed that Chelsea played well in the second-half against Liverpool and has urged his teammates that if they continue to put up such performances, then the wins will come.
Kante said: “The first one was a beautiful goal but the second one we maybe could do better but at the end, we played well, we tried to come back but the set-pieces meant Liverpool won.
“We played very well in the second half. We were able to score one but not to equalise, but there were some good points in the performance and we need to take those points on to have a good result in the next game. If we keep working this way we can get a win in our next game.”
Chelsea’s next game is at home to League Two side Grimsby Town on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup and Frank Lampard will be aiming for a first home win of the season.
Chelsea are currently 11th in the league and one of six teams in mid-table with eight points from six games, and Kante has urged his teammates to fight their way higher up the table.
“It is not a great start, we have work to do,” Kante admits.
“We are not where we want to be but we can fight and change this in the next games.”
