Chelsea vs Arsenal preview: Antonio Conte wants to turn Tiemoue Bakayoko into the next N'Golo Knate

17 September, 2017

However, French worldwide Bakayoko believes that the tides have turned, with Tottenham, who finished as runners up to Chelsea in the Premier League title race last season, considered as the bigger adversary by the summer signing.

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 can improve a lot with the ball.

"He's working very well and he needs a bit more time than other players to understand very well our style of football".

His arrival sparked Nemanja Matic's surprising exit to Manchester United. Now you can see a complete player - with the ball and without the ball.

"We want to work in the same way with Baka".

"Having already played that match, being able to win that match, being able to bring so much happiness to our fans was really a wonderful achievement for the team".

"Last season I said during many press conferences about N'Golo that he could improve a lot with the ball", Conte said.

Kante last season became the first outfield player to win successive Premier League titles with different clubs, earning both major individual awards in the process. We are working on this aspect.

Together this season, Kante and Bakayoko have managed a combined total 26 defensive actions so far in the Premier League - making 13 interceptions as well as 13 clearances.

Chelsea midfield star Tiemoue Bakayoko has admitted that he feels the club are bigger rivals with Tottenham than with Arsenal.
