Pre-Match Conference: " I'll give kante the freedom " says Lampard
It's discussion that has been over-talked at times last year and that was me watching it from the outside," Lampard said when asked about kante's most suitable position.
"The important thing for me with all of our midfield is that we have a flexibility, and nobody is pinned down to an absolute structure.
"I think we saw elements of that against Liverpool where the players have a freedom to use their attributes.
"The idea that he wins the ball probably as well as anybody in world football doesn't mean that he has to sit in front of the back four and do that.
"He also has it in his game to drive forward with the ball, to lead midfield areas and win the ball back high up the pitch.
"That's what I want to give him the freedom to do."
Kante’s absence was keenly felt in the Blues’ opening league game of the season, however, when a midfield pairing of Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho was exposed as Manchester United romped to a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
