Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has insisted that he is playing N'Golo Kante in his best position, despite criticisms from the fans and media.

Lampard currently plays Kante in an advanced midfield position but the fans want to see the France International in a deeper midfield position for the blues, something Lampard doesn't agree with.

“I haven’t always played him in the same role as I am guessing what you are saying with Sarri playing him as a slightly further forward number 8,” he said.

“There has been plenty of times this season where we have played with two midfielders as N’Golo Kante played for France, as he played for Leicester and as he played for Antonio Conte’s team with two midfield players.

“He wasn’t the holder in Antonio Conte’s team. Matic was probably more of a holder than N’Golo Kante because he used his energy to get all over the pitch. So I have used him as I see fit on that.”

Kante is likely to be rested for the FA Cup clash against Hull City tomorrow.
