N’golo Kante 25, is a French and Chelsea midfielder. He was part of the Leicester city team that lifted the premier league title last season (15/16).

Kante lit up the premier league in his debut season last year with his work rate and discipline. He made an impressive 175 tackles in the premier league (31 more than any other player in the premier league in 2015/16). He was the lynchpin in the Leicester city midfield last season. He made 156 interceptions in the league (15 more than any other player).

In July, Chelsea announces the signing of N’golo Kante from Leicester city. That transfer is simply a genius piece of business from the Chelsea recruitment team.

Kante have featured in ten of eleven premier league matches so far this season. Kante have lived up to every expectation and penny spent on him in the summer.

In the last five matches, Kante have improved in every area of his game and have given the back three of Luiz, Cahill and Azpilicueta solidity,confidence and cover to surge forward sometimes. Kante have scored once this season against Manchester United.

Chelsea’s run or fight for the title will depend on the form, fitness and discipline of N’golo Kante this season.
