Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says his side has to continue from where it left off against Hull City before the international break.
The Blues host Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday with the Italian eager to take all three points to keep in touch with the top of the table.
And he praised midfielder N'Golo Kante who joined Chelsea from the Foxes in the summer.
"Tomorrow I have four central defenders and I have to take three, one must go on the bench," Conte explained.
"We are finding the best solution to exact all the players' talents. Against Hull City, we played a good game. Willian, [Eden] Hazard and [Diego] Costa played very well and they did what we want.
"We must continue in this way. It's right to have a team that is compact but with players that are very offensive and can create many offensive situations.
"It's not important if we play with three or four at the back. It's important to follow the principles we are working on. It was necessary to find a new solution because it's not right a great team like Chelsea were conceding so many goals.
"He's [N'Golo Kante is] an important player.
"We are very pleased to have him with us. He's a fantastic player. Good stamina, technique, personality.
"He has brought great will to fight. He's a very humble man, a humble player. I like him and I like this type of player – that put the team before themselves."
