A question I'm wondering about. When we play teams in the bottom half at home does Kante need to start? I think he should be benched against teams who will sit back. We don't need to play Kante and Kovacic at home. I would like to see Kovacic and Loftus-Cheek or Barkley start next to Kova and Jorginho at home.

Kante does so much work which is not shown on TV. I do attend some games and the boy covers so much ground and does so much interceptions.

{Ed001's Note - I am with you on that, I would drop anyone else from the team ahead of him! He is the key player in the side.}

I think Kante is not droppable mate. His our energy in the middle. The amount of times he intercepts in a game is unreal, amount of counter attacks he stops is unreal. He is the best defensive midfielder in the world. For Sarri his unstoppable, teams would counter attack us for fun given that we are always playing on the front foot these days.

But I could see your thoughts behind it. With Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic we lack goals. Personally, we have to rotate Kovacic, Barkley and RLC. Against weaker teams we should start with RLC, weaker teams will defend deep and he is the only one that scores from range and drives with the ball. However, I can see Barkley up his game even more now. Maybe against tougher opponents we use Kovacic who would have been perfect if he had goals in his game.

Kante really isn't the key player in our side given the new philosophy that title is now in the hands of Jorghino.
The problem is further compounded by the lack of goalscoring players in other key positions.
Our first choice midfield of Jorghino, Kovacic and Kante rarely score likewise our strikers.
In his new role Kante simply isn't the player he was under Conte and Mourinho.
If Sarri is around for the long term I could see Kante choosing to move on and play for a team that can utilise his exceptional talents to the full.

I wrote a post but wasn’t uploaded on how kante does the pressing, winning bell back and ground covering they no other player can do and how he is better on ball than most think. My fear is he is only player except hazard who has a high value and worry PSG ( desperately need him ) could come in and Chelsea sell to raise funds for other players that Sarri may want,

Turvey nice analysis mate, especially as Kante never played for Mourihno ;)

He's created 10 chances.

Jorgihno two

Barklay two

RLC two (in thirty minutes)

Kante has to start.

He really doesn't which is a major problem for me.
Where are the goals coming from without Eden playing at his best?
Take a look at the goal tally for our middle and front players in the last 12 months .

I think both Kante and Jorginho have to start, I think there does come a point in some games though where both don't have to be on the pitch together.
