Chelsea boss Lampard: I have so much faith in Kante

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was delighted with N'Golo Kante's performance for victory at Newcastle United.

Kante was again impressive for the 2-0 win.

“We've been working very hard to get him fit and fresh and his levels and performance are really, really high," Lampard said of Kante.

“I just have so much faith in him and the top player he is in world football. We have had a better period to get him in a place where we're really happy.

“Every time you allow him off the leash in training he makes ridiculous output because that's the way he plays, so we are very careful with that and at the moment we are in a very good place."
