Chelsea boss Conte excited by Bakayoko potential: He'll get the Kante treatment

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is keen to guide Tiemoue Bakayoko into becoming a complete midfielder, just as he had done with N'Golo Kante last season.

Kante has been an integral part of the last two title-winning sides, with his performances for Chelsea last term earning him the PFA Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year awards.

The Blues previously stated that France worldwide could still improve in other areas of his game, and he believes the midfielder has worked hard on his weaknesses.

However, French global Bakayoko believes that the tides have turned, with Tottenham, who finished as runners up to Chelsea in the Premier League title race last season, considered as the bigger adversary by the summer signing.

"Baka is a good player and a good signing for us".

Firefighters called after man gets penis stuck in gym weight plate
While it isn't known what exercise landed the man in such a freakish situation, a Facebook post advised people to steer clear of such acts.

Now Conte says the 26-year-old is a "complete player". "He's working very hard to improve this weakness".

"Last season I said during many press conferences about N'Golo that he could improve a lot with the ball", Conte told reporters. He can improve a lot with the ball. If you remember he was very, very good without the ball.

"Having already played that match, being able to win that match, being able to bring so much happiness to our fans was really a wonderful achievement".

"But it is nevertheless incredibly important and it's absolutely vital that we work hard to achieve the right result on the pitch".

Chelsea face Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on this afternoon.
