N’Golo Kante looks to be back in his best form.
The 29-year old World Cup winner didn’t feature for Tuchel in his first two matches in-charge but slowly made his way to the first-team fold and has played the last three matches for the Blues.
Tuchel said on Kante: “It was clear from the first second of training what this guy is capable of doing. It’s unbelievable.
“You see his intensity in the physical report after matches and you think they may have tracked two players and put it into the same sheet.
“He’s unbelievable in what he delivers in terms of intensity, in terms of ball recoveries, his devotion to the group is world-class, at the highest level. I am very, very happy he is in our squad.
“He has come back from an injury so he will not play now every 90 minutes before the international break. We will manage him and we do that with the physical coaches.
“We have to take care that he is fit until the international break and when he comes back we hope he has the momentum where can rely on him in every game.
“I’m very happy to have him, Jorginho, and Kova [Kovacic] in defensive midfield, this is exactly the level we need to win games.
“So I am super happy with all of them.”
