  • Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez would get into Chelsea's team says Charlie Nicholas

Now he his hoping the former player of the year can inspire fellow Frenchman Tiemoue Bakayoko, a £40million summer signing from Monaco, and form a formidable midfield partnership.

His arrival sparked Nemanja Matic's surprising exit to Manchester United.

Bakayoko has made a solid start to life at Stamford Bridge, scoring his first goal in Tuesday's Champions League thumping of Qarabag.

Antonio Conte believes his work with N'Golo Kante over the previous year has helped develop the player into the complete midfielder and the Chelsea manager expects Tiemoue Bakayoko to undergo a similar transformation over the coming months. "He's a 23-year-old - don't forget this", Conte told reporters. "To have in your team a powerful player is very important, above all in this league". But he can improve a lot with the ball. We are working a lot on this aspect with him.

"We did the same with N'Golo when he arrived here".

"We try to play with an identity and if you want to give an identity to your team, every single player needs to know very well your idea of football".

'Now I think you can see a complete player with the ball [and] without the ball. We want to work in the same way to have this process with Baka.

Kante joined the Blues last season, and helped the club claim their fifth Premier League title and his second. You know he is a special character, but we all love him.

But he can improve a lot with the ball.

How successful he has been so far will depend very much on how quiet Kante and Bakayoko can keep Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez this afternoon.
