  • What Maurizio Sarri must do to stop N'Golo Kante looking 'very average'

The blues fell to defeat at Wembley Stadium against their London rivals in their latest top-flight fixture, which was their first defeat of the season.

Instead, Carragher feels the incoherence that occasionally hurts the Blues' midfield stems from Sarri instructing Kante to play in a less effective position.

Offering his own insight into the match, the Italy global claimed that the Blues weren't "compact" enough, before playing down a potential title race.

"Jorginho will not move from that position", he said on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, per Goal. "I don't want Kante in this position", he said in a pre-match press conference ahead of facing PAOK in the Europa League.

N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic both started during the disappointing defeat to Tottenham at the weekend so I expect them to be rested with Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in-line for recalls in midfield.

Sarri did not hold back in his criticism of Chelsea's performance immediately after the Spurs loss, and he held individual meetings with his players on their return to training on Monday.

PAOK would be eliminated should they lost at Stamford Bridge and Vidi beat BATE Borisov, with the three points seeing the Hungarian side through to the last 32.

"I think it's a hard spot for him to be in, because while he is on the verge of being a great player, he's not quite there yet, and I think to go for £60/70m, whatever it's gonna be, it's gonna put a bit of pressure on him to really do justice to these numbers".

"Somebody told me that, maybe, the worldwide break was a problem". In the first 10 games of the season, the 26-year-old striker scored five League goals and three assists.

'It's very hard for me to understand why. If you don't have determination, you have no motivation. The target is very clear in my mind: "the target in the short period is to win something, and in the long period it's to become the best team in Europe". I wanted to understand this'.

When quizzed if Kante knows his duties, Sarri said: "Maybe, maybe it's only a question of time 'But Kante has to stay near to Jorginho, especially when the ball is on the other side".
