EPL: Thomas Tuchel names Kante’s best position

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has said that midfielder, N’Golo Kante’s best position is in a ‘double six’.


Tuchel also hailed Kante as a ‘world class’ midfielder who played a vital role in the World Cup win for France.


Kante has been out of action for three weeks with a hamstring injury.


The former Leicester City star also missed Chelsea’s 0-0 draw with Wolves on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.


Kante could be in contention in Chelsea’s next game against Burnley on Sunday.


“I think he [kante] is the strongest in the double-six, in the centre, the heart of the game,” Tuchel was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying.


“For me, he is a double six because we can use his energy, his range in his game, his ability to recover the ball.


“For me, he is a guy who is a big, big helper for everybody, with the mentality of a water-carrier – but at the same time a world class player who played a crucial role in the World Cup win for France.


“That’s why it is super important for me to have him.”
