Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has sent an order to Chelsea midfielder N’GoloKante to stick to his role in midfield after having individual post-mortems with his Chelsea players following their defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Spurs won the game 3-1 at Wembley on a cold Saturday evening to end Sarri’s perfect start to life in Chelsea, an 18-game unbeaten run and the Italian manager wants to see a reaction from his boys.
Chelsea are reportedly looking to drop last season addition Danny Drinkwater this summer. The 28-year old has struggled to make his impact at the club since joining. It is believed that Chelsea want to sell him off to help raise cash to acquire Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri.
Drinkwater was part of the Leicester team that shocked the world when they lifted the Premier League in 2016. Coach Antonio Conte signed him to boost the depth of the squad but the club is looking at cutting him loose after being deemed surplus to requirements. The player has barely made him mark since moving to the club.
