Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has named the one Arsenal player that the Blues will need to be wary of as the two sides go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge this Sunday, report the London Evening Standard.
Kante has proven himself as one of the best midfielders in the world in recent seasons, and there is no player he should fear, rather they should fear him. However, he is understandably wary of the threats his opponents pose, it’s one of the reasons why he’s the player he is.
One player that he is cautious of is compatriot Alexandre Lacazette. Kante is quoted by the London Evening Standard identifying Lacazette as one of Arsenal’s main threats ahead of Sunday’s game:
“I think maybe in England, you don’t know him very well. But in France, he was a very good goalscorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday’s game. We have to be ready to stop him but the most important thing is the team and we need to win.”
Lacazette found the back of the net 37 times in all competitions for Lyon last campaign. It will take some time for him to adapt to the demands of the Premier League, but once he does, he could be frightening.
