The midfield partnership of N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic has been creating waves in the Premier League.
The duo have impressed at the center of the field with a string of world class performances which has helped Chelsea maintain a clean sheet in the last few games.
While, Matic had been out of form for a long period of the time, the arrival of Kante has helped the Serbian to get back to his beastly best, thus, helping us thrash away opponents as was evident against Everton and Manchester United.
Recently, the Frenchman was asked about the secret of his good rapport with Matic and here’s what he said:
“Chelsea have many very good midfielders, but most of the time I play with Matic and, yes, he’s a good player. In training we have done a lot of work together, so in the game we can understand each other,” Kante told the website.
“When he goes forward, I stay back. When I go forward, he stays back. When you play together, it’s good to understand each other and I think it is a good partnership.”
The problem with the Fabregas-Matic midfield was that Fabregas was too offensive minded which resulted in Chelsea being a little bit vulnerable against the impending counter attacks with no real balance in the center.
The arrival of Kante and the change of shape has solved that problem while, also providing a much needed balance in the midfield.
Hopefully, Kante and Matic can keep up their good form with Chelsea set to play Tottenham and Manchester City in the next few weeks.
