Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has welcomed new signings Davide Zappacosta and Danny Drinkwater.

For victory over Leicester City, there was a debut for new arrival Zappacosta who came on as a second-half substitute, while Drinkwater was on the bench, and Kante has welcomed the two new arrivals.

“It’s always special to come to a new club,” he said. “They keep training with us now and they will learn how we play. It’s good to have some new players in the team.”

Kante was also delighted with his long range goal.

“Thibaut gave me the ball, I had time so I went on a run and shot. I think somebody touched it a little bit, but it was a good goal and an important one for the team. I’m happy to help the team win.

“It’s always a pleasure to score but I kept it inside because I want to respect my old team.”
