N'Golo Kante is an average midfielder - Jamie Carragher

Chelsea's unbeaten start to the season came to an end on Saturday when they were thrash by Tottenham at Wembley.

One would say N'Golo Kante and Chelsea Italian midfielder Jorginho hard a difficult game as Tottenham midfielders were able to trap them down during the game.

Speaking  on Monday Night Football, Jamie Carragher reveals Kante is a very average player in the position he is being played by Sarri and that Sarri needs to move him back to his fovourite position.

'Well number one: Jorginho is not moving from that position. He's Sarri's man, he's built his team around him,' Carragher said

'kante is not moving because he's signed a massive contract.'

'What I would say is Jorginho has been excellent this season. Teams are having to change their system and style to counter-act Jorginho. So that shows how important he is and how good he has been.'

'So if he's getting man-marked, as he was, by Dele Alli, [Gylfi] Sigurdsson, Juan Mata, that means there should be space for other players.'

'This is Chelsea. They have big players. The space was in the wide areas [against Spurs], so we want to see more from Eden Hazard, Willian, the full-backs.'

'The one thing about Kante is, he is a very average player in this [advanced] position he's playing now. I see a normal midfielder player,' He continued

'When he plays deeper, I see a world class midfield player.'

'What do you do? For me, I don't think this balance ever looks right. I think it's quite simple - whether or not Sarri is stuck on this 4-3-3 all the time. Play them as a midfield two and play Barkley, or Willian in front in more of a 4-2-3-1.'
