Why Jorginho is more important than N'Golo Kante for Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri rebuilds club

In the 26-year history of the Premier League, it's difficult to remember many more dramatic shifts in style between Chelsea pre-Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea under the Italian manager.

Even Arsenal's transition from George Graham's defensive-minded football to Arsene Wenger's artistic attacking was aided by the one-season reign of Bruce Rioch, who had the demeanour of Graham but preached the importance of playing out from the back and loaded his side with creative talent. Chelsea have not had that...

Eden Hazard jokes goal was to help N'Golo Kante avoid taking penalty

English Carabao Cup: Eden Hazard (85') Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea
English Carabao Cup: Emerson (79') Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea
English Carabao Cup: Daniel Sturridge (46') Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea

Eden Hazard joked that he had no choice but to score the sensational solo goal that sealed Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup third round because N'Golo Kante had told him he did not want to take a penalty.

Chelsea trailed at Anfield from the 58th minute when Daniel Sturridge acrobatically fired beyond Willy Caballero, but Emerson Palmieri bundled in a controversial equaliser before Hazard beat five Liverpool defenders in the course of a dazzling move and smashed the winner...

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri must not waste N'Golo Kante's talents

Stewart Robson explains why Maurizio Sarri's side struggled to come away from the London Stadium with a victory over West Ham.
Craig Burley isn't interested in hearing about how the Europa League affected Chelsea's play after they dropped points for the first time this season.

There is no doubt among Chelsea supporters that under Maurizio Sarri's management their team is playing a more entertaining and enterprising brand of football. An unbeaten start to the season with six wins from seven matches in all competitions has brought Sarri plenty of praise, but the last two matches, a 1-0 away win against PAOK in the Europa League and a 0-0 draw at West Ham in the Premier League, saw the first serious questions being asked of the Italian's strategy.

Although both games were...

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante plays FIFA, has dinner with new friends after missing train

N'Golo Kante had an off day in the World Cup final, but Julien Laurens and the FC crew explain why he was pivotal to France's triumph in Russia.

As if it were possible to love him even more, stand by and wait for your admiration of N'Golo Kante to grow ten-fold.

The story goes that after playing a central role in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Cardiff City on Saturday, Kante was due to spend the rest of the weekend in Paris with his family.

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante contacted by Paris Saint-Germain over transfer

Maurizio Sarri understands John Terry would like to continue playing, but Chelsea are leaving the door open for a possible coaching role at the club.
Jorginho says Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is a man of routine and is unlikely to shake up the team's lineup, unlike new Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante said there was "some contact" with Paris Saint-Germain this summer but he is happy to have stayed at Stamford Bridge, where he feels "good."

Kante, 27, was an important member of France's World Cup-winning squad in Russia, but despite heavy links with a return to his home country after former coach Antonio Conte was replaced by Maurizio Sarri, the former Leicester City man is happy to still be in London this season.

"There was no particular desire to go somewhere after...
