Premier League: Chelsea legend criticises Lampard over N’Golo Kante role



Premier League: N’Golo Kante sends Todd Boehly contract message as Chelsea prepare for ‘exciting project

Chelsea legend, Glenn Hoddle, has criticised caretaker manager Frank Lampard for how he used midfielder N’Golo Kante in the Blues’ Premier League 3-1 defeat to Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Hoddle believed Lampard should have played Kante in a more defensive role against Arsenal to bring the best out of the France international.

Chelsea lost against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium following a brace from Martin Odegaard and a goal from Gabriel Jesus.

Noni Madueke did score a goal for Lampard’s side in the second half.

“For me, the midfield, I don’t get [N’Golo] Kante playing in that position going from there,” Hoddle told Premier League Productions.

“I see him as one of the best holding players in the world, defensive midfield players in the world still at 32. Do that job. Do what you are good at and then go and feed people who can go and play in those defensive areas.

“It does not suit him. He can’t go and play on the half turn, he can’t play with his back to play, he can’t score goals from that position. He might come up with one or two from distance playing in a deeper role. You have got to play the right players in the right position.”
