Midfield might just be the strongest area of Chelsea’s squad, even after the departure of a player of Cesc Fabregas’ quality.
When it comes to retaining possession and winning the ball back, in Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, the Blues have two of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
Yet it does still feel like they are missing something in that department. A real attacking threat to be more precise.
And while Kante, to his credit, is starting to offer that, it is never going to be an area he builds his game around.
With that in mind, Maurizio Sarri could really do with someone like Frank Lampard or Michael Ballack, who has recently come in for praise from Chelsea supporters, to play alongside Kante and Jorginho.
At Bayern Munich, the German was great at getting into the box to score goals in a role that Ruben Loftus-Cheek could relish in at Chelsea if given a genuine run in the first team.
You can have a look at what Chelsea fans are saying about their former midfielder below…
Back when we had midfielders that knew where the goal was!

Now Kante is our only midfield threat lol. Ruben should be as well but he doesn't start enough. Hope he starts tonight.
