Chelsea have been without the energetic N’Golo Kante through injury for a couple of games now. In those games, the Blues have conceded a few goals unlike when he was fit.
Now, ex-United star Owen Hargreaves has highlighted Kante’s importance to this Chelsea side as they continue their EPL title charge.
“He’s a human vacuum, isn’t he? He tidies up everybody else’s mistakes,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions.
“Everything he touches wins; Leicester, Chelsea, France. Every team he walks into is a significantly better team.”
“So, he’s the guy who knits it all together — he’s the one you need back.
“That intensity, the pressing out of possession, are essentially priceless for every team.
“Get him back and work [Romelu] Lukaku into the side.”
N’Golo Kante could be in team training as soon as Tuesday and the Chelsea midfield desperately needs the Frenchman back.
Kante’s qualities cannot be exaggerated enough and it is no surprise that the Blues have conceded 8 goals in their last 3 games.
