Kante - Poor start against Bayern Munich cost Chelsea logo 26-07-2017


Chelsea paid the price for a slow start in their 2-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup (ICC), according to midfielder N'Golo Kante.

Thiago Alcantara's opener and Thomas Muller's double put the German champions 3-0 up within the opening half an hour at the National Stadium in Singapore on Tuesday but the Blues put up some fight to pull two goals back.

And Kante, a two-time Premier League winner, felt that the Blues' reaction to the early setback against Bayern was commendable.

"It was a good game. We played against a good team (Bayern). We tried to give our best but they played very well. They scored early in the game," he told Goal after the game. "So it was little bit difficult after 3-0 but we reacted very well and finished with 3-2.

"It was a good game. You have to keep working and keep improving the results."

The 26-year-old also extended his welcome to new signing Alvaro Morata. "He is a good player. We are pleased to have him in the squad. We try to make him feel good and comfortable (in the team)," the Frenchman stated.

Defender Andreas Christensen, back from a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, also echoed Kante's thoughts and bemoaned their poor start to the game.

"The second half was a little bit better from our side. We got a difficult start but I enjoyed it as it was good atmosphere," he said. "It’s just a game. We all had to enjoy and work on fitness and get some things in the squad.

"The team can’t do better than what we are doing right now. We just keep working hard and we have to keep doing that."

Chelsea' next game in the International Champions Cup is against Inter Milan on July 29th at the same venue.
