Chelsea have a huge task at hand this weekend as the Blues must beat Pep Guardiola’s side to cut the gap to 7 points.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante can be the difference in this game.

“Chelsea could easily let Man City come onto them,” the former Arsenal striker told Premier League productions.

“You’ve got Kante, he can break down play and he’s so good progressively with his passing forward.

“He’s so unbelievable at reading and knowing where the danger is. He was so phenomenal at that then people think that’s what his main strength is.

“This is what [Maurizio] Sarri tried to do with him and Frank [Lampard] tried to with him.

“They wanted him to win it higher, but they know that because of the calibre player he is, how good he is with running with the ball, one-touch passing, scoring, they tried to move him forward.

“But then, you think to yourself, why take arguably for me the greatest player I’ve ever seen play that position out of there when he can do everything that he’s doing there?

“He’s going to have to put in those kind of performances against Man City, because if he does that, they’ve got an unbelievable chance of beating them.”
