N’Golo Kante: What I really think about Tiemoue Bakayoko at Chelsea
N'Golo Kante opens up about Tiemoue Bakayoko following the French midfielder's transfer to Chelsea
N’Golo Kante believes that Tiemoue Bakayoko is now settled into life at Chelsea and is backing the midfielder to step his game up in the coming weeks.
The France international has been getting used to life at the west London club after signing for the Blues in the summer transfer window from Monaco.
It has been something of a shaky start to life at Chelsea for Bakayoko, who has been criticised for his ineffective displays for the west London side since his move.
However, Bakayoko showed signs of improved form on Tuesday night when he scored one of Chelsea’s goals in their 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town.
Kante has been getting used to playing alongside his fellow Frenchman at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks and he is convinced that Bakayoko is now set to hit top gear for the west London side.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, Kante said: “I think he is having a good time now at Chelsea. He is a professional.
“If he needs advice, I can give it to him. But it is the same at every club – try to work in training, to understand what the coach wants and give your best in the game. It is the same everywhere.”
Both Bakayoko and Kante will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a home clash against Newcastle United.
Antonio Conte’s men are currently in third place in the Premier League table and 14 points behind leaders Manchester City after 17 games of the new campaign.
