Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins has highlighted the importance of star midfielder N’Golo Kante to the team following his influential display in a 1-0 victory against Premier League rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

The France international midfielder returned to the Blues starting line-up for the clash with the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge last Sunday.

The former Leicester City defensive midfielder was ruled out with a hamstring injury during the last international break as the West Londoners conceded 13 goals in six matches in all competitions in his absence.

Kante, 26, helped the Blues to dominate United’s midfield in an important 1-0 victory at the Bridge to move to within just a point of Jose Mourinho’s team.

The PFA player of the year touched the ball a total 68 times and ended up with 90 percent pass completion in a sensational display against the Red Devils.

Former Blues assistant manager Ray Wilkins admitted the reigning champions struggle without the midfielder in their starting eleven.

“[Ngolo] Kante came back in [into the starting line up] after a few weeks out [of action], my goodness gracious me how fit is this young man [Ngolo Kante]?” Ray Wilkins told Sky Sports News.

“He’s [Ngolo Kante] incredibly fit, the ground [area of the field] he covered in the match was just amazing. Without him [Ngolo Kante] there is certainly a loss.”

Chelsea bought Kante in a £30m transfer from former League champions Leicester in the 2016 summer window.

He helped the club to win their second League title in three years last campaign after the Blues finished seven points above their closest challengers Tottenham.

Why this goal poacher must replace the botch legs of Giroud and Morata.

Mauro Icardi

Despite notching five consecutive victories and a single draw this season, Spanish forward Alvaro Morata had a diminutive share of contribution to the success of the Blues which perhaps could twist his focus to the exit door at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is not tentative with his top 9 choice in comparison between World Cup winner, Olivier Giroud and Morata.

The two times Champions league winner started earlier above Giroud in Sarri’s pecking order but was left on the bench in a plausible 4:1 victory against Cardiff City last week.

While Morata’s stay is doubtful, Chelsea would consider making a swoop for Inter Milan’s goal poacher Mauro Icardi who

Why Icardi?

The talismanic figure of the Seria A elite has seen his team to the champions league, stamping his trust by manager Sampaoli who made the 25-year-old club captain.

He endured a wonderful spell last season with his teammates when he added 29 goals to his tally. Inclusively, the Argentine forward was the major contributor in the champions league 2:1 victory against Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs.

Beyond being a prolific striker, the leather finisher has a Premier League character that best suits Sarri’s football.

If Chelsea decide to comb for a hitman, then they should consider a long-term target in Icardi, perhaps it will be noteworthy to break the bank to get his signature which is around £85.5 million.

Chelsea fans, do you think it will be awesome to add the Argentine to end Chelsea’s smirch in front of goal?

Abramovich could break the bank to sign PSG’s target

Roman Abramovich

The Polish international Piotr Sebastian Zieliński who was nicknamed “Pablo Nedved” by Naples fans, spearheaded his team to victory against AC Milan and as well played a pivot role in Carlo Ancelotti’s style.

Chelsea’s new boss, Maurizio Sarri showed interest in the Polish international after his impressive performance in the Seria A. Although, Napoli’s chairman already cut-off the relationship with Sarri after joining Chelsea and taking Jorginho alongside.

Sebastian Zieliński has appeared as the potential replacement for Slovakian and Naple’s captain Marek Hamsik.

The French top elite, Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest in him after losing Thiago Motta and Giovani Lo Celso last summer. Thomas Tuchel is combing for Blaise Matuidi’s replacement who left two seasons ago under then manager, Unai Emery.

Many wonders why Chelsea’s manager is after the midfield maestro because he was always on the reserved role last season.

It was also reported that Zielinski has been linked with rivals Liverpool making the market competitive for the Blues.

With information already looming around that Zielinski could sign a new deal that will see his buyout clause range from €100-€120 million which is worth a deal for someone who just started playing with the first XI.
Abramovich will need to battle with PSG’s billionaires to bring the indefatigable player to London.

Gary Cahill, set to leave Chelsea in January

Gary Cahill

Former Chelsea captain Gary Cahill who turns 33 in December is worried about not having playing time under his new manager after retiring from international duty to focus more with his club.

Cahill was the joint force of Antonio Conte’s 3:4:3 formation but has fallen far below Maurizio Sarri’s pecking order in the defensive line.
The former England defender has made his intention known to the club after failing to be tested by Sarri in the Europa cup competition on Thursday, while he thinks the manager has made his services and contribution latent.

The 32-year-old defender said in an interview about his decision to leave in January:

“I don’t want to jump the gun, but as things stand at this time, probably, yes (I’ll have to leave in January). Said Cahill.

The 2012 champions league winner still believes he has a chance to play under other club managers with a link from Europe waiting to establish their defense with him.

A case scenario occurred when Jose Mourinho picked Thibaut Courtois ahead of Peter Cech, so this could be a cliche to his understanding as he would want to leave come January.

“Obviously the most important thing is the club. But I have to look at my situation. I have to take charge of my own future”.

Knowing fully well that his contract would expire next season, Cahill only appeared once on the bench and that was on Thursday but he did not feature to show his qualities which makes him uncomfortable settling with the football club.

Albeit, his absence has not proven any reason why he should be included in the team because the Blues have won 6 consecutive matches since the start of the season.

EPL match day 6: Predictions and Analysis

Bright

So last week we add predictions right with 3 correct scores. Let’s see what we have for matchday 5

Saturday
12:30 Fulham vs Watford

Watford would want to come back from the defeat against United when they face Fulham but with the way Fulham plays their possessive football, there is no sign of losing this. I think there will be goals.

Predictions: Both Teams will score
Probable score: 2:2

15:00 Burnley vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth have started well under Howe which is why the manager is the long-term serving boss since coming from the Championship.
They really know how to stay compact and ready for the counter. I still think Burnley will lose this game because they don’t seem to have that cohesion as they did last season.

Prediction: Away Win
Probable score: 1:3

15:00 Cardiff City vs Man City
There is no doubt City side will win this to make amends from the howler of Wednesday’s demolition from Lyon. I feel for Warnock here but surely, a win for Pep Guardiola.

Prediction: Away win and Over 2.5 goals.
Probable score: 1:4

15:00 Crystal Palace vs Newcastle
The Eagles have shown how difficult they are to beat when their star player Wilfred Zaha is in-form. Rafael Benitez’s men always appear so hard to beat as well so a draw will be fine here.

Prediction: Draw
Probable score: 1:1

15:00 Leicester City vs Huddersfield
No way will Leicester lose this after the mayhem last week against the Cherries.
Playing against a team who look like would not escape relegation will see them get the much needed three points.

Prediction: Home Win
Probable score: 2:1

15:00 Liverpool vs Southampton
I think this would be a very easy win for the Meyerside and I don’t see Southampton stopping them from getting the first goal in the first half. The Reds are just too good this season.

Prediction: Home win
Probable score: 2:0

15:00 Manchester United vs Wolverhampton
Mourinho got his grip since he lost recklessly to Tottenham. He’s answered his fans with great wins so far. Albeit Nuno will never settle for a team to have them play behind the ball. They are very direct so I expect United to get a win with their conservative football.

Prediction: Home win
Probable score: 2:0

17:30 Brighton vs Tottenham
Pochettino’s men are really struggling but do I think they will struggle against Brighton who won them last season? No. They have to come out and play like what they are known for.

Prediction: Away win
Probable score: 1:2

Sunday
13:30 West Ham vs Chelsea

A derby day and a delight to watch. We saw how West Ham parked the bus last season to get a 1:0 Win here but this season they may pay for it if they do so under Sarri’s style of football. A win will do for the league leaders.

Prediction: Away win
Probable score: 0:2

16:00 Arsenal vs Everton
Arsenal has been impressive so far but are yet to keep clean sheets while Everton’s Richarlison will come back from suspension. Both clubs are yet to keep Clean sheet, it will not be different when they play.

Prediction: Both teams will score
Probable odd: 2:2

Surprising! Mourinho holds the key to Pogba’s future
