'I have so much faith in him': Lampard happy with Kante performance at Chelsea

Lampard explained that Chelsea have been managing Kante's minutes in order to keep him fit.

He praised the Frenchman's passing and link-up in midfield.

The Chelsea manager said he is very happy with Kante's high performance levels.

“I know what you mean by quietly influential but he's much more than that for us," Lampard said, as reported by goal.com

“Last year he missed 50 per cent of the games with injuries, he had a tough time for different reasons and we are working very hard on that to get him fit and fresh.

“Now we are managing his training and game time, but his levels of performances are really high.

“I keep saying every time I get asked about N'Golo that I have so much faith in him and the top midfield player that he is in world football.

“Not just breaking up and winning balls back, as we know that is a huge quality of his, but his passing and supporting in midfield and playing in that deeper role now has been a very comfortable transition for him. Really, really happy with him.”

Kante had an excellent game in Chelsea's 2-0 win against Newcastle, playing in the holding midfield role, protecting the defence and winning the ball back.
