Last season under Maurizio Sarri, Kante was played further forward than usual and scored more goals in a season than he ever had before, but Chelsea were left defensively exposed.

Many believed this to be the case because of Sarri's insistence on playing Kante further up the pitch.

Higginbotham believes it was more down to Jorginho being left to fend by himself defensively while Kante ventured forward.

The former Stoke man noted how Kante had success against Liverpool in the Super Cup final because Mateo Kovacic and the Frenchman would take turns partnering Jorginho in a deeper role.

"The problem isn't the fact that Kante was pushing high last season, it was the fact that Jorginho didn't really have any support."

"There's no problem with Kante going forward."

Kante was magnificent as Chelsea lost 5-4 on penalties to Liverpool after an enthralling 2-2 draw in Istanbul.
