​Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante were reunited as part of the same team once again when Chelsea signed Drinkwater on transfer deadline day and the former Leicester City players are happy to play in the same team once again.


The England international completed a £35m move to Chelsea towards the end of the summer transfer window. Drinkwater has still not played for Chelsea since joining the league champions due to a calf injury.


However Kante is looking forward to partner with Drinkwater in Chelsea's midfield and the Frenchman believes he is a great signing for Antonio Conte's team.



After Chelsea's 6-0 win over Qarabag at Stamford Bridge, Kante spoke about Drinkwater to ​Goal and said, "I am pleased for him to come into Chelsea. We need everyone, especially after our time together in Leicester. I hope it could be something like Leicester or even more, I hope."


Reminiscing the unbelievable run-in that lead to Leicester City's title triumph, Kante said, 

"We did a special year together in Leicester to win the league. It wasn’t expected and I really enjoyed the season that I spent with him and I am happy that he chose to join Chelsea and I am happy to play with him again."


Looking ahead to Chelsea's next Premier League match against Arsenal, Kante spoke about his international teammate Alexandre Lacazette, who plays for the Gunners. He said, "In France, he (Lacazette) 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."
