What is happening to Chelsea’s diminutive midfielder?

Chelsea FC won all three points in the game against Crystal Palace today.

The Blues are now at the second spot on the EPL table thanks to Alvaro Morata and Pedro, who gave them three goals against the Eagles.

Despite the Blues top performance against Crystal Palace, one midfield player, N’golo Kante seems to be out of place and Chelsea fans have stated that he should be sold in the next transfer window.

While there have been some progress in the Blues midfield lately, Kante seems to be losing focus.

He has not been at his best for Chelsea in their past three games.

Kante has played for Chelsea every minute of the EPL this season and his recent performance may be due to lack of rest.

Sarri could have given Kante the chance to rest today during the game against Crystal Palace and could have played one of Matteo Kovacic or Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who are both good in the attacking role.

Also Kante has lost his place as the Blues centerpiece to Italian midfielder, Jorginho, who is now seen as the center midfielder.

If Jorginho is not on the pitch, Sarri prefers to make use of Cesc Fabregas in his place.
