N’Golo Kante reveals when Chelsea will win the title
N'Golo Kante says Chelsea must assume that their rivals will win their remaining games - leaving the Blues six victories from the title
N’Golo Kante has told his Chelsea team-mates that it will probably need to win six of their last eight games to guarantee the Premier League title this season.
The French midfielder has been one of Chelsea’s top performers since his arrival at the club from Leicester City last summer.
His fine form for the Blues has helped Antonio Conte’s men to build a seven point lead at the top of the Premier League table and establish themselves as the firm favourites to win the title this season.
Chelsea took another step towards winning the title when they beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
However, Kante has warned his team-mates to assume that their rivals will all win their remaining games this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Kante said: “The reality is that mathematically we need six wins so we just need to focus on our ways to win these six games as soon as possible for the title.”
Chelsea’s remarkable upturn in form this season under new manager Conte has been in stark contrast to their struggles last term, when they ended up 10th and without a trophy.
