Chelsea goalscorer Kante: Sarri gave me new role

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has revealed he's playing a different role under manager Maurizio Sarri.

Kante scored in Saturday's win at Huddersfield Town.

The French midfielder, playing in a slightly more advanced role than usual, spoke about adjusting to a different position.

"It's a new manager and a new system," he told chelseafc.com. "I played a little bit further forward, I need to adapt to this role but I will give my best in this position for the team and I hope we can keep doing good things in the future.

"I try to find the striker, to be more offensive and cause problems for the opponent and I think it went well. But we have to keep working hard in training and I hope in the next game against Arsenal we can get a good result.

"I think it was important to start very well and after the first two goals we managed the game in the second half. It was a good victory and a very good start to the season."
