Chelsea’s tireless midfielder, N’Golo Kante doesn’t believe Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are Arsenal’s major threats going into Sunday’s London derby between the two Premier League sides, rather, Kante sees club record signing, Alexandre Lacazette, as Arsene Wenger’s key man.
Arsenal spent a club-record £52million to buy Lacazette in July from Lyon, where he found the net 100 times in Ligue 1.
The 26-year-old has adapted quickly to the Premier League too, scoring in wins over Leicester and Bournemouth.
And Kante, who impressed on his first Champions League appearance in Tuesday’s 6 – 0 win against Qarabag, said: “I think maybe in England, you don’t know him very well.
“But in France, he was a very good goalscorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday’s game.
“We have to be ready to stop him but the most important thing is the team and we need to win.”
