Kante warns Chelsea to beware huge threat from Arsenal man


"I think in football, when one game passes, we need to forget [it] to keep improving", Kante said.

Some of the concerns were understandably down to the commotion surrounding transfers, and Conte's own clear frustration at the initial inability to strengthen the squad.

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.

Goals from Pedro, new boys Davide Zappacosta and Tiemoue Bakayoko, Cesar Azpilicueta, Michy Batshuayi and an own goal on Tuesday made it seem as if Chelsea had never been away from the competition, even though they had been forced to watch from afar for a year. We need everyone this month'.

"I think they know how we play and also we know how they play", he continued.

Speaking after Kante scored the winning goal in Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday, Conte said the France worldwide had become a "top player" and was justifying the decisions of both the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association to name him the best player in the Premier League in 2016-17.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has identified former Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette as the key to stopping Arsenal on Sunday.

After the Qarabag win Kante added that he is pleased to be reunited with his Premier League title-winning midfield partner, and hopes they can enjoy similar success at Chelsea. We prepare game after game and try to win game by game. "We need everyone, especially after our time together in Leicester", the tire-less Frenchman commented.

"I am happy that he chose to join Chelsea and I am happy to play with him again". It wasn't expected and I really enjoyed the season that I spent with him.

"We have to be ready to stop him but the most important thing is the team and we need to win". Now it's the beginning [of the season], we can not expect to do the same. I know we won 13 games in a row.
