"I think N'Golo can play in every position in midfield", Giroud said.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that he will be unable to call upon his superstar Eden Hazard, when he names his side to face PAOK Salonika in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
Playing the 27-year old Frenchman in a deeper role is a solution that Sarri must consider in certain games to avoid a repeat of what happened over the weekend. Kante wanted to solve the match after the first 15 minutes but in the wrong way.
However, despite signing the new five-year contract, Sarri has continued to baffle supporters by fielding the 2018 FIFA World Cup victor from his regular central midfield role into a wider and more attacking position.
"He will not be able to play tomorrow but I think we will be able to recover him for the next Premier League match".
Sarri described Chelsea's performance against Spurs as "a match without determination".
However, the Italian boss Sarri, who replace compatriot Antonio Conte at the start of the current campaign signed Brazil-born Italy midfield star, Jorginho.More news: Three US Service Members Killed in Afghanistan Blast

"I talked player by player".
"When the ball is on the left, he has to stay very close to Jorginho".
"When he plays in his natural position I see a world-class player".
Sarri told journalists that he is expecting to make several chases for Thursday's clash with the Greek outfit, with his side now six points clear at the top of Group L.
Sarri has encouraged Kante to get forward in matches and his latest comments may appear to be a contradiction.
"I want to see we've learned our lessons". I had a meeting of ten minutes individual meetings. "It is not easy because we have 28 players".
"It's not normal. First of all, I want to see a reaction, but I want to see a reaction in the next Premier League match as well".
