Alan Shearer provides verdict on Jorginho and Kante after Huddersfield win
- The MotD pundit has praised Jorginho and Kante's performance against Huddersfield
“Other than the first 10 to 15 minutes when Huddersfield started well, hit the bar and could have scored, Chelsea largely dominated,” Shearer said.
“Jorginho and Kante, the first time they have played together (made a big contribution).”
With clips of the two running through the central areas of the pitch, Shearer added: “This happened too much.
“Once they got beyond the midfield there was a lack of protection in front of the back three for Huddersfield.”
Shearer talked of Kante now being free to get in the box, as he did for his goal.
“He can do that now because Jorginho doesn’t mind sitting,” said Shearer. “In fact he quite enjoyed it.
“I agree it was a penalty with Schindler bringing him down, and it was a clever penalty from Jorginho, who gave the keeper no chance.
“I think we will see more and more (of Jorginho and Kante) playing like that this season.
“We know Kante can get back as well, so very promising signs for Chelsea in that midfield.”
