Chelsea recorded a 3-1 victory over Leeds United Saturday night in the Premier League – and some of the club’s fans on Twitter singled out N’Golo Kante for immense credit.
The Blues extended their unbeaten run with a hard-fought three points against Leeds at Stamford Bridge, which was played in front of 2,000 loud supporters.
Visitors Leeds took the lead early in the contest with a goal from ex-Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford, but Frank Lampard’s men responded in perfect fashion.
In-form Olivier Giroud equalised in the first-half with a first-time finish in the box, before Kurt Zouma scored on the hour mark and substitute Christian Pulisic added a third late in stoppage time to cap off a strong comeback.
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media picked out Kante as a real standout for his contribution in the centre of the park.
The 29-year-old French World Cup winner has been restored to a position of a deeper midfielder this season, something which appears to be getting the very best from his game out of possession.
He’s excellent with his defensive work in terms of recovering the ball and intercepting passes, with signs against Leeds he’s back to his very best levels again.
