Bruno Saltor praised ‘incredible’ N’Golo Kante after Chelsea’s Premier League draw with Liverpool draw and admitted he found it ‘hard’ to lead the side in replace of the sacked Graham Potter.

The Blues interim boss said: ‘It’s difficult to enjoy this type of experience because you’re really focused on the game. I tried to help the players from the touchline as much as I could.

‘After what happened on Sunday, yesterday we had a recovery session. I tried to spend time with the players and talk to them. I thought they gave everything.

‘It’s been hard, we are very close friends [with Graham Potter]. It’s difficult to stand here without him but I’m trying my best.

‘We created chances. We scored, offside. It will come to the boys because they deserve it.

‘We left Liverpool without anything [up front]. They put their bodies on the line, I’m really happy with back three. We had players on Ramadan, some back from injury.

‘N’Golo Kante is incredible. His performances are good. He’s a leader with his performances.’

On what the next few days will look like, Bruno added: ‘I’m going back home, rest, focus on the next game. We will just focus on every day.

‘The boys are giving their best. It’s been a really hard season. They’re human beings, we have to help them.’
