N’Golo Kante has been a regular started under Frank Lampard this season partnering Jorginho or Kovacic. Chelsea have registered five wins in their first eight games and currently sit fifth in the table. Kante, who won the Premier League with Chelsea under Antonio Conte has backed his club to challenge for the title this season.
Chelsea, who signed the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech have the joint highest goal difference along with Tottenham, and Kante believes they have the players to challenge for the title. Speaking to TF1 the World Cup winner said “The team has changed in recent years, the coach has been here for a year working together. I think we have signed a fair amount of new players and what we are trying to do is to maintain Chelsea’s standards, win titles and be at the top in England. We are well placed at the moment, I hope we will continue in this vein. And I hope that we will qualify for the Champions League as quickly as possible again.”
