N’Golo Kante: Chelsea midfielder currently has more Premier League goals and assists than Mesut Ozil AND Dele Alli

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has raised eyebrows over his insistence on playing N’Golo Kante in a more advanced position to the holding role he’s used to.

It looked like a genius move on the opening weekend of the Premier League season when Kante found himself on the scoresheet as Chelsea raced to a 3-0 win at Huddersfield.

However, Kante has not had the same effect this season as he has previously including in the 2016/17 campaign where he bagged the PFA Player of the Year award.

Sarri has decided Jorginho is the best man for the holding role while Kante plays as a No.6 instead, much to the fury of Blues supporters.
