Thomas Tuchel praised N’Gola Conte for his performance in ChelseaVictory over Lille with a score of 2: 0 Champions League but admits the midfielder has “fought” in recent games.

Conte starred in the match at Stamford Bridge as goals Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic secured the victory of the European champions.

The impressive passage of the World Cup winner through midfield led to Pulisic’s goal, and Tuchel described the 30-year-old as a “game changer” at Chelsea.

“I was very pleased today,” Tuchel said of Kante’s speech.

“It took him a while, I have to say. It wasn’t a real N’Gola in recent matches.

“He struggled a bit with faith, in his intensity and in his game as a whole.

“It was good that he stepped up today, it was nice to see and you can immediately see how big of an impact he is in good shape.

“He certainly changed our game. He made a great impact, I am very happy for him and for the team. “

Meanwhile, former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole claims that Conte is the most influential Premier League midfielder in the last decade.

“I don’t think our league has a midfielder as influential as he has certainly been in the last 10 years in our league, a comprehensive midfielder,” Cole said.

“What he did at Leicester and what he did at Chelsea… everything he does.

“If he plays well, you win.”
