Kante admits that he is a huge admirer of Hazard but says that he was not surprised to see the Belgian score such a good goal agains the Gunners.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website after the game, Kante said: “We all know Eden Hazard has great technique and he scored a beautiful goal.

“It’s good for him and good for us.”

Saturday’s win left Chelsea flying high at the top of the Premier League table, with the Blues currently nine points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
