No doubt about it, Kante Fabregas and Hazard have been Chelsea's best players this season, bar none. But I still feel bad for Kante. 

Kante's being forced to watch an inferior footballer in Bakayoko by playing as a B2B CM when that should be Kante's position. In the limited times Kante's been allowed to play as a B2B CM this season, I've been very impressed with the additions to his game Kante has added in terms of making smarter decisions in the final third. 

Disagree with the second part. Despite improvements Kante is still quite limited when it comes to the final third and really isn't an ideal fit for a more advanced role. 

Besides i feel the central role he's playing now suits him best. Normally the central player in a 3 man midfield acts as the holding player but for us ,due to our midfield being flat, it's actually the outside midfielder furthest away from the ball that acts as the holding player.

This allows Kante to get stuck in all the time as he never really has to hold his position. He can always provide close support on both sides.

Kante and Fabregas are playing in their best position. I think now along with better wingbacks we should be on the lookout for a 3rd midfielder. Bit of a mixture between Kante and Fabregas. Someone who combines their 2 skill sets together (obviously not as good )

Someone capable of providing a creative spark in the final third and linking up with Hazard Morata Fabregas while being able to defend well, cover a good amount of ground and help Kante out on the defensive side.

I'm in love with N'Golo We got him for the low low I'm in love with N'Golo  

One poor game (his passing was shit yes) and one of our most consistent players this season and reasons why we are top of the league needs a long term replacement. speechless.

Saul from Atletico would be the ideal player for this role IMO.

Terrible in an advanced role, but you know what. He tried out there today, which is more than you can say for the mast majority of the side out there.

 

 

You can't say terrible when he laid on a superb chance for Morata. Still much more useful than Bakayoko on either end.

That had a lot to do with the fact that West Ham were allowing him time on the ball. 

Let's face it when Kante's is expected to create something isn't right.

Well bakayoko is absolutely useless so him being more useful than him isnt saying much.

 

I think terrible by his standards is what I meant.

In games like the one we had against Everton, I think Kante should be benched, because even with all his defensive abilities and work rate, he just isn't good enough while attacking, so when the opposition is sitting back, why not bring on someone more suited to attacking

And who would you suggest anyway? We only have Fabregas as our creative midfielder. Playing Kante is not the issue. Playing Bakayoko/Drinkwater along with Kante in a midfield 2 when the plan is to dominate is the issue.

Dont know why we aren't making a bigger deal about this?

Eden has been made Belgian DOTY but I bet more fuss will be made of him.Not confusing that with POTY

But considering the players he beat......

Pogba,Griezman,Varane,Lloris,Benzema,Matuidi,Mbappe......

Going into his 3rd excellent year at the top level, he is still underrated by a lot of people. All hail Kante the GOAT!
The fact he was PFA POTY, French player of the year & 8th in the Ballon d'or list would suggest otherwise.

And all that while being the one doing the unglamorous work in the team, playing a role that normally goes unnoticed. Usually such awards or high places fall to goalscoring prodigies, but he is just so outstandingly good it doesn't go unnoticed. How long before big teams come asking about him?

We can hope other players aside from those that grabs the goals get the plaudits they deserve.

Real Madrid have been linked with him in recent months, but he isn't the glamour name.
