Nemanja Matic and N’Golo Kante have formed a formidable partnership in the Chelsea midfield this season, especially since the switch to a 3-4-3 system. The pair has protected the Chelsea defence very well, and with just 2 goals conceded in as many games, one can only see why.
In an interview with Chelsea magazine, Matic talked about his partnership with Kante. He said: “We play two in the middle when we have to make that block, but of course when one of us can use space – depending on which side the ball is – we can go forward. But this only happens maybe two or three times per game. Most of the time we have to stay and keep the balance for the team.”
