Kante: "It’s an important game for both teams"
Chelsea Midfielder N'golo kante has been speaking about the challenge of Manchester united and how he spent the premier league winter break.
‘We are having an important time of the season because we are all fighting for the fourth position,’ he said, reflecting on a battle for Champions League qualification that features most teams in the top half of the table at this moment in time.
‘We all know that Man United at home is a very difficult game, especially after what happened in the first game but we don’t look at this. We just look forward because we want to keep the gap and so that’s why we need to win, not to get revenge.’
‘Man United were a bit behind but now they have closed the gap so it’s a big opportunity either for us to keep them behind or for them to close the gap more. It’s an important game for both teams.
I spent time with family and friends at home in Paris, just chilling,’ he revealed. ‘It’s a nice thing, a new thing in the Premier League and it’s good for the players. I could focus on my family without thinking too much about football.
‘It’s important for us and the fans so we need them to keep supporting us as they always do and we will try to give our best to make them proud,’ he added.
‘We have come back and tried to get a good fitness, to be prepared for the next game because we need to make sure we get the three points.’
‘I believe we have the team to get what we want this season - to finish in the top four, get Champions League football next season and why not to win a title as well. We have everything that we need in this team.’
‘These are important games for the rest of our season because in the league there is a lot of competition for the top four. We know that Bayern Munich are a good team so we have to fight to go through from the last-16 and we know all about Liverpool as well.
‘The FA Cup is a beautiful cup in England and it can be another trophy for us. These are important games and we hope to manage them in the best way.’
