Chelsea played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Tottenham last night in pre-season – and even some Spurs fans on Twitter were blown away by the performance of N’Golo Kante.
The Blues recored a draw in front of an excited Stamford Bridge audience.
Hakim Ziyech’s brace should give him real confidence going into the new season. However, the visitors did equalise in the friendly match due to goals from Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn.
Chelsea’s successful pre-season has now drawn to a close, so attention turns to next week’s UEFA Super Cup final against Spanish opposition Villarreal.
Chelsea favourite Kante delivers 45-minute masterclass v Tottenham
It’s usually Chelsea fans that are waxing lyrical about Kante each game, but even the opposition supporters couldn’t help but praise him on Wednesday for his display against them.
The 30-year-old Frenchman got some valuable minutes in the legs by playing the first half against Spurs.
He wore the captain’s armband while on the pitch and put in a majestic performance, albeit it’s still only pre-season.
A trademark tackle to break up possession then saw him release Ziyech to assist the opening goal. Also, it seemed like he was all over the pitch winning back possession and he even showboated with a couple of tricks.
It seems like not long ago there were question marks over his future, but he’s the world-class individual in this group. There are a few others that have a strong claim to that title, too.
Here are some Spurs fans acknowledging Kante’s midweek performance:
