Chelsea are currently third in the Premier League, having reached the semi-finals of the League Cup, as well as the last 16 of the Champions League. Thomas Tuchel’s side are six points behind leaders Manchester City, in their bid to win their first Premier League since 2017.
Kante knows the mentality at Stamford Bridge. It’s the mentality of wanting to win year after year and the 2021/2022 season is no different. Kante admitted: “One thing I’ve been taught here is that once you come to Chelsea, the main goal is to win trophies.”
“We’ve kept that in mind since the beginning of the season and we follow through the whole season, it keeps us motivated. Every time we train, every time we play, our focus is on them. I’m on target to win.”
Kante has been questioned about his ability to face Brighton tonight after picking up a knee injury against Aston Villa, but he did take part in Tuesday’s training session at Cobham. This home game will be the Blues’ last in 2021. They have overcame a disappointing time with a win over Aston Villa, hoping to end the year on a best-case basis.
