Chelsea players absolute disgrace, but this where it is hard to defend Sarri, criminal what he is doing with Kante. The lad looks like a poor player now.

Especially considering it's Jorginho that seems be be playing his role as well, looks out his depth in The Premier League.

now I hope people realise how important it is to play players in there right position

thhe notion that a player should just play well regardless of where is manager plays him peddled by pundits and the media is one of the most idiotic things I keep hearing in football

He didn't win the league with us playing as a holding midfielder.

Must try harder

What is Sarri's actual reasons for playing Kante as a more attacking threat and replacing him with inferior player there?

Is he trying to make a bold statement that he can do it his way differently?

There is logic to what Sarri is doing but it just hasn't worked in practice.

If you want to play a high pressing system then you do take the player with the best engine in the league, who is the best at recovering the ball and put him further forward. In theory should result in more turnovers of possession and crucially closer to the opposition goal. Problem is the rest of their team isn't following suit and a 1 man press is useless.

He was always going forward pressing high and having Matic behind him to sweep up whenever his proactive nature got him caught out.

Conte tried Kante as a holding midfielder jn his first few games and it went so well he had to overhaul his entire system .

For the record I don't have a problem with him not shaking hands at the end of the match at all. I don't understand why we force managers to do that in this country
.........................
We don’t force them. They shake hands in most countries and is s show of sportsmanship and respect and happens in all sports.
He didn’t shake hands because he threw his toys out the pram after getting decimitated similar to what Wenger used to do

What is Sarri's actual reasons for playing Kante as a more attacking threat and replacing him with inferior player there?
==================

I think he wants a more technically gifted player who can receive the ball from the defence and play incisive passes through the lines to start attacks in that deeper role.

Think Carrick, Xabi Alonso, Pirlo.

With that said, I don't why Kante couldn't just sit a little closer to Jorginho and still use his engine to get around the park and do his thing. I think that's how he operated next to Drinkwater and then Matic, and it's how Herrera works in our midfield.

Sarri too rigid that's why. His system is 4-3-3 and he won't change anything about it even if it means ruining our best player.

Another person who hasn’t seen Kante play lol

Since when was Sarri managing Pogba?

If I was Chelsea manager I would play this front 6:

Kante Jorginho
Hudson-Odoi Hazard Loftus-Cheek
Higuain

Play Kante further back where he's more effective

Isn’t that a prerequisite for being a Chelsea fan?

Just let it out you chinless wonder, I know you’re just hurting from getting spanked yesterday.

Also...definition of insanity

Continuing to do something the same way with the same kit and methods. ..and then expecting a different result

I'm not a fan of Kante forward personally...but it's not a popular thing on our board, as many will tell you he's not a DM

I don't know what your problem is with Sarri. I find it far more responsive than Alexa.

Oh, wait...

Not hurting, just calling you out for what you are. And you are clearly so uneducated you can't even see it.
