N'golo Kante Analysis – How To Read The Game Like Kante



the goal Oconto has risen to prominence in the last couple of years and for good reason he is considered one of the best center defensive midfield players in the world with many teams now looking for the next Conte in this video we are going over something that Conte does so well that allows him to be such a valuable player in the CDM position and that is his ability to read the game so effectively Conte is considered by many to the second coming of Mack alele and it's hard not to see the similarities he covers so much ground has fantastic tackling ability and acts as an almost impenetrable shield in front of the Chelsea backline but more than anything else Conte is a smart player and reads the game better than most because of this he's able to see things happening before they take place so let's go over how he doesn't Conte is known to cover a lot of ground however that doesn't mean he does it in a chaotic way he actually has a very very good positional discipline and he needs to in order to play his position well this is actually why it seems like he is everywhere because he always seems to be in the position he needs to be in to win the ball this allows him to get good tackles in it allows him to be available for the ball it allows him to shield the defense and it allows him to make many of the interceptions that he makes so if you play CDM make sure you recognize that your positional discipline is one of your most potent weapons half the battle of defending is taking up positions which makes the job easier next time you watch Conte play look out for what positions he takes up especially during transition plays or when chelsea are put on the back foot one thing I've noticed about Conte is he is so clever with his tackling he rarely gives away fouls in dangerous positions and there is actually a reason for this first way he does this is he doesn't go to ground unless he needs to or unless he knows he'll win the ball you'll find that he actually will use his body to move an attacker off the ball and win it he is a master at knowing when to launch into the tackle and get his body between the ball and the man so let's take a look at this play here to give you an example of this so in this point you're gonna see something that Conte does a lot to win the ball back fairly by using his body so let's take a look at this again much closer he quickly goes after the guy make sure he's level with him uses his shoulder to ease him off the ball but look at his right foot immediately trying to get across his man and there it is again getting his body in the way so he'll use his body to get it between the man and the ball just eases him off the ball he does take running to Louise so it looks a little worse than it is but this is a very fair and smart tackle by Conte and he'll do this all the time all game to win the ball back fairly next way he wins the ball so often through his tackling is he takes players by surprise he is so good at hiding his presence that you'll see many times that players don't see him coming he deliberately tackles players on their Blind Side so that he can win it clearly and cleanly without having to foul the player and he times this so well so here is an example of him doing exactly this so here is an example of Conte defending a player on the Blind Side and getting a tackle and against Raheem Sterling so we'll take a look at this very quickly and you can see that he's going on the side that sterling isn't aware of him by the time sterling does check his blindside it's too late because Conte is already moving so quickly towards him that his momentum allows him to get a good position on the Sterling and win the ball and poke it away and Conte does this all of the time he'll use his technique – when another player is distracted he'll come on their blind side and they won't see him coming and that's how he's able to win the ball so cleanly so often without fouling a player finally we do have to quickly cover contains work rates now I know that I said earlier that his positional discipline makes it seem like he is everywhere and that is true but he also does work so hard and covers a lot of ground if a player beats him he gets right back into position or goes after the player he's relentless and doesn't seem to stop moving all game what I want you to take away from that is that you have to have incredible work rate in this position when you mix work great with positional discipline as a CDM you have a formula for success all right this is how to read the game like

  1. Here is a N'golo Kante analysis where we go over how to read the game like him! This is something he is particularly good at and is the reason he is one of the best CDM's in the world! Get my FREE Ebook "Game Changer" here: http://bit.ly/ebookgamechanger

  2. Not a brag but I’m really good at reading a game but I like to play as a striker

  3. it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE to teach how to READ the GAME! You didn’t even explain it. You just talked about how we plays. Stick to NFL, MLB and the NBA.

  4. KANTE is an intelligent player, he does more than what the other players do. I finally found someone like me as an example. I would never give up, read the ball so well, super fast but the problem was I wasn't fit as him

  5. Some1 tag maurizio sarri…that old man is ruining kante's game. The fact that he is playing kante out of position is enough to fire his ass on grounds misuse of resources in his disposal. sarri MUST go!!

  6. I am not an experienced soccer player by any means but even in the few clips you showed he had some very borderline tackles. At one point it looked like he was grabbing on to an opponents arm and pulling him around backwards. Definitely not legal.

  7. Can anyone tell me or point me to a resource to know what is considered a fair tackle? I'm strong and fast but rarely use it to my advantage because I think I might be fouling.

  8. 2016 – 17 won premier league with Leicester 2017- 18 again wins premier league with chelsea and 2018 wins the world cup probably the vest player after Messi Ronaldo and neymar
