NGOLO KANTE INJURY:-
Frank Lampard has not been impressed with the injuries Kante had this season, he believes that N’Golo Kante might have to change the way he manages himself and stay fit so that he will be available for the selection in upcoming matches.
The Frenchmen had been the only Chelsea player to be a part of every minute in Chelsea line up.
N’Golo Kante is now out of the upcoming match against crystal palace he is also unlikely to be fit to face Sheffield united which was going to schedule at the weekend.
Kante is undergoing the fourth injury of the season, he already missed the crucial matches in Premier League and Champions League. Lampard explained Kante might have to adjust his preparations and his fitness as he is going ahead in later stages of his playing career.
Frank Lampard has given his view in a press conference on Zoom“Take the small injury he has now out of it slightly because all players can get that in this period because we’re asking a lot of them in games,”.
“The story of the season being he had a pretty bad injury in the Europa League final and when we came back for pre-season, I wasn’t sure what the situation was and it turned out he wasn’t near fit with that injury.
“And now we end up with a slight domino effect that took us through the season which means he played pretty much fifty per cent of the games as we went into lockdown. I like to think that we’re through that patch and that this injury now is pretty unrelated.
“One of the things that looks different for me is that when you do get a few injuries, when you are in your mid-twenties you see things differently and you have to maintain yourself slightly differently and N’Golo certainly buys into that and I think that will help too.”
Lampard has a lot of impressive players and young talents to select from Mateo Kovacic is one of the players who will be going to miss out in midfield during the upcoming fixtures.
Jorginho and Billy Gilmour are two players which are still going to play a single minute since the resume of the season after the Pandemic in late June. Along with those two, Ross Barkley continues to be in a good run of form, adding goals and assists to his game.
He added “I spoke of it the other night after the game about teams with low blocks who make it difficult for you,”
“To be able to get players who can arrive with technical ability high up the pitch and around the box and find a pass and take someone out of the game with a skill or finish… It’s big in those games if we feel like we’re going to have a lot of control.
“Generally, with the midfield, I do like midfield players who can perform and create chances for the team, not all the roles but can play high, can play on the side, can do the defensive duties and Mason really has that.
“His work off the ball is fantastic for us and if I feel like getting him high up the pitch to put more pressure on the other team if they want to play out, that can help us off the ball.
“Sometimes I’ll ask him to do a slightly different role with the ball where he comes deeper to make sure he’s not missing out on the ball because he’s a good player and needs to be on the ball deeper. Himself and Ross can perform that kind of role.
“Kovacic can perform that kind of role. Ruben Loftus-Cheek can perform that kind of role. N’Golo Kante can perform that kind of role. Billy Gilmour can. Jorginho also can but his role predominantly in his career has been from a deeper position.
“I had those good problems within the team. I like to work on the midfield, making it as fluid as it possibly can be so we give teams problems.
“Some performances recently, Watford being one the other day, Everton before lockdown I saw a real fluid movement of the midfield which I really liked. We have to continue to work on that.”

Mourinho expects Son to sign a new Spurs deal despite already being agreed till 2023
Jose Mourinho is confident that Tottenham will place a new contract with Son Heung Min.
Jose Mourinho is assured that Tottenham can present a new contract to Son Heung-min despite the South Korean international already having a contract till 2023.
Last time Son renewed his terms in the summer of 2018 when he extended his contact for 5 more years.
Since renewing his contract he has shown excellent growth as a footballer and became the main man for Tottenham Hotspur.
Paperwork has prepared and it just needs Son’s signature in order to extend his stay at Tottenham.
Mourinho believes a resolute update will be given in the near future. He is looking forward to keeping the South Korean in his team as long as possible.
Mourinho told reporters when questioned about the new contract being agreed: “I would love that.
“Son has three years of contract so it’s not like we’re in an extreme situation of everybody being worried.
“It’s more that Son loves it here, I believe that he would like to commit his future to the club for a long time.
“Everybody at the club is totally in love with this player and this boy and is trying also to make him feel part of the furniture.
“It’s normal the club tries to go from three years to four or five or six, I don’t know.
“He deserves one, and the club knows that sooner or later without any pressure they will arrive into a decision.”
After his move from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 Son started the season slowly at Spurs. Since then he has shown consistency year after year and enjoying his time in Premier League.
He has scored staggering 77 goals in the last four seasons that he played in Premier League. He already has nine goals out of eight appearances in the 2020-21 season.
Mourinho said “Season after season after season, Sonny is showing how good he is.”
“Of course, the better the team is, the easier it is for the players to emerge. But, Sonny, everybody knows what he does.”
Fabinho admission about replacing the Dutch international Virgil van Dijk
Fabinho of Liverpool admitted that it’s just impossible to replace Virgil van Dijk.
Liverpool’s center-back Fabinho says he can not completely fill the void left by the star defender Virgil van Dijk after getting a long-term injury during the premier league game.
Van Dijk is set to be out of the rest of the season sustaining a serious knee injury after a challenge from Jordan Pickford during the match against Everton.
Adrian is another player who has taken the position of injured Alisson in his absence. He accepted that it felt strange playing behind a Liverpool defense without the Dutch international(Virgil van Dijk).
However, Jurgen Klopp’s team shown an impressive performance against Ajax on Wednesday. Fabinho together with Joe Gomez stands firm at the back as Liverpool started their Champions League campaign with the win at Amsterdam.
Fabinho told Mirror“Of course, I am not Virgil – he is the best defender in the world right now.”
“The manager said to me I have to talk more to try and organize the team. Sometimes I have to get the second balls and be ready to press. In this role, I must try to do my best.
“When I knew Virgil was out for a long time, I was shocked because first of all, he is the best defender in the world right now. But most of all, he is a leader in the team and in the dressing room.
“He also makes sure the mood is good – a good atmosphere – and we will miss this. But I have got to do a little of what Virgil always does. I must try to organize the team. To talk to the team and try to be a leader.
“Tactically, at center back, I have to always be ready for the long balls. But I will do my best and it was very important for me and the team to keep a clean sheet here.”
“But I will do my best and it was very important for me and the team to keep a clean sheet here.”
It is a devastating blow nonetheless, with keeper Adrian, who has been given the similarly impossible job of replacing Alisson, summing up the shock – and the defiance – in the squad when he said:
“We are going to miss Virgil for this season. It is a big loss for us but it is how we react. We have good players who play in this position with Fabinho and Joe. We have a great squad.”
Van Dijk sent a message to the entire Liverpool squad to boost team spirits before the game played in Amsterdam.
Wijnaldum later said after winning the game, there won’t be any talks with Van Dijk about football in the initial stage of his recovery, no matter how the season is going.
“Virgil sent a message, he wished us good luck in the group chat on Whatsapp, he wished everyone well,” he explained.
“But for me, I don’t think it is the right time to speak with Virgil about football.
