Kante warns Chelsea to beware huge threat from Arsenal man

Drinkwater and Kante

N'Golo Kante has backed Chelsea summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko to replace his former midfield partner Nemanja Matic.

Kante made the decision to postpone his entry into Europe's elite club competition by moving from Leicester City to Chelsea in the summer of 2016, and after the match the France worldwide said the experience had been worth the wait.

The midfielder is getting his first taste of Champions League football with Chelsea this season after their title win last term. "It was something that I used to watch when I was young and to play now with Chelsea here at Stamford Bridge is special". I was sure to join this good club.

But when Conte's comments were put to him following Chelsea's 6-0 Champions League demolition of Qarabag on Tuesday, Kante was reluctant to dwell on last season's individual achievements. "Last season was awesome for me and the club but that was the past and we need to focus on the future".

But Conte feels there is even more to come from the Frenchman, insisting that Kante's goal shows there are still areas in his game where he is improving. This is what we need to do.

"I remember when I was asked a year ago [about leaving Leicester to miss the Champions League]".

"I think last season was unbelievable for me and the club but this was the past and we need to focus for the future, and this is what we need to do, and I don't feel like the Player of the Year". Let's hope that he continues to develop alongside Kante at the heart of Chelsea's midfield.

After a opening day defeat to Burnley, champions Chelsea have started to hit their stride, but Kante has warned them from complacency against the Gunners - especially with £52million man Lacazette having been added to the Gunners armoury.

"It wasn't expected and I really enjoyed the season that I spent with him and I am happy that he chose to join Chelsea and I am happy to play with him again". "It's going to be a good fight, and we need to be ready for Sunday's game but I think [the teams] know each other".
