Oscar Out, Verratti in: Could this be Chelsea’s new-look midfield in 2017?
CM – N’Golo Kante
N’Golo Kante is the anchor in this midfield, and with the offensively-minded Verratti in the side – that will be essential.
He disappointed following his arrival, but in recent weeks he has been impressive in the heart of the Chelsea midfield.
Not limited to just defensive play, Kante’s range of passing is spectacular – and that will compliment Verratti perfectly.
