Chelsea’s midfielders have boasted of a free role in midfield under Frank Lampard, which is very different from previous boss Maurizio Sarri.

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Kante has revealed that Lampard could play with one midfielder or two sitting deep. Kante also revealed that he doesn’t have a specific role under Lampard and that he loves being adventurous going forward.

“It can be similar because usually we play with one midfielder behind and two in front so in this case it’s similar to what I was doing under Sarri,” he said.

“Sometimes we can switch a midfielder and play with two deeper, like I play with the [France] national team, but every midfielder in this team can play every role.

“My role can change but it’s about playing wherever the manager asks me to play. I enjoy playing further forward but what makes me most happy is to get good results for the team.”
