Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has admitted the club feels the absence of N’golo Kante.
The French midfielder left the club for Chelsea in the summer and played against his former club for the first time today, since he left the foxes.
But while Morgan admits the France international is missed, he insists it is time to move on.
“He was fantastic for us last season, he was our Player of the Year, what he did was incredible,” Morgan told Sky Sports.
“He came from a relatively unknown team in France and came to England and did extremely well.
“If any team didn’t have him, they would miss him and that goes for us. We do miss him, but we have to move on.
“We have got other players that have come in and are doing a great job in that position and there’s no point dwelling on the past and dwelling on N’Golo. We have to look forward for ourselves and we have players that can fill his boots.”
Leicester have collected eight points from their opening seven Premier League fixtures to sit 12th in the table, five points adrift of Chelsea.
“Teams know our strengths and will try to nullify them so we have to think of different ways to win and different systems because we don’t want to be predictable,” Morgan added.
“Maybe we were overlooked last season, we surprised everyone, this season nobody is taking us for granted. Teams have approached the games with more intensity.”
