Chelsea FC: Kante makes the difference for us - Sarri

He arrived in England the previous summer when signed from Caen for £6m by Leicester, who he helped win the Premier League title in his first season.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

"I think Mourinho is at fault for having this kid [Rashford] thinking every time he steps on the field, he has to prove himself", Nicol said on ESPN FC. "It has been two lovely years and I wish for more to come", the 27-year-old two-time Premier League victor said in a statement. 'Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about.

Hazard's deal with unbeaten Chelsea runs until June 2020 and speculation over his future at the club has intensified since his impressive displays for Belgium at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The France worldwide, 27, has scored three goals in 81 Premier League appearances for the Blues after joining from Leicester City in 2016.

Speaking in September, he said joining Madrid remained his "dream" but he was still open to talks about a new Chelsea contract. "He was 19 when I played with him in France and even then he was just so talented".

Asked if there was any progress in a new deal for playmaker Eden Hazard, Sarri added: "I don't know the movement of the contract".

But Mourinho has hinted that Eric Bailly could return to action on Tuesday night, when United play Young Boys at Old Trafford.

'Victor in the building up is better than Chris, so we found this balance and I again repeat they are not flawless, nobody is ideal but that couple is performing quite well.

The loss leaves Chelsea seven points adrift of Manchester City, leaving Sarri unhappy. He also stayed, no national team, they also let him stay in spite of playing 90 mins against Manchester City. "We have to make sure we don't lose the ball in our half; they are unsafe in those situations".
