Lampard: "The idea Kante wins the ball as well as anyone in world football doesn’t mean he has to sit in front of the back 4. He has too much in his game: driving forward, leaving midfield areas and winning the ball back high up the pitch. I’m looking forward to working N’Golo"
Lampard on Kante in Super Cup: “He’s not trained much, I’ve had to protect him because he’s played and played for years and he had a serious injury. He said to me at HT in extra-time that his legs were finished, his legs were dead, and then he’s sprinting 50 yards to cover" #CFC
"Those who hammered his predecessor Maurizio Sarri for using Jorginho as the pivot in central midfield, with N’Golo Kanté on the right, didn’t raise a murmur of protest on Wednesday when Frank Lampard did the same thing." - Robbie Savage If I say anything right now... #CFC
Graeme Souness: "Fabinho, twice he had Kante dance past him as if he had Jacques Cousteau boots, lead boots on. I’m not seeing a Liverpool that resembles the Liverpool we saw last season. I’m amazed Liverpool were more tired than Chelsea, they’ve had two extra days to rest"
