Speaking to the press following Chelsea's 6-0 win against Qarabag in the Champions League, ex-Caen player Kante said: "In France, he was a very good goalscorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday's game". This is what we need to do.

That could push out Fabregas, with Conte considering going with Bakayoko and Kante in a powerful-looking midfield for the visit of the Gunners, while David Luiz will step back into the centre of defence and Alvaro Morata will reclaim his place up front. It was something that I used to watch when I was young and to play now with Chelsea here at Stamford Bridge is special, ' said Kante.

"I hope it could be something like Leicester or even more". "We won 13 games in a row [in the Premier League]".

The French midfielder has earned plenty of new admirers since his arrival in the Premier League and his fine displays helped Chelsea win the title under Antonio Conte last season.

Chelsea lost in the recent Community Shield and last season's FA Cup final against Arsenal but Kante insists that his side will be ready to take on their rivals. We did well last season and now we have to play in the Champions League.

However, Kante believes that Chelsea have found a more than adequate replacement in the shape of Bakayoko.

"I think we were close to winning but the red card [for Victor Moses in the FA Cup] was more hard for us, they scored, and after we lost on penalties [in the shield], but in the game we were good, we were close to winning, and was the next game against them", Kante added. "We play Arsenal on Sunday and we will give everything to win". It wasn't expected and I really enjoyed the season that I spent with him. Some players joined the club but it is like that in every club. Now it's the beginning [of the season], we can not expect to do the same. He remains anything but.
