The French midfielder played the full 90 minutes at the Bet365 Stadium as Antonio Conte’s men secured a dramatic win to take them a step closer towards winning the title.
Willian opened the scoring in the first half but the Brazilian’s strike was cancelled out by Jon Walters’ penalty before the break.
But it was Gary Cahill who had the final say, as he smashed home a loose ball from close range to wrap up the three points for the Blues in the 87th minute.
Kante was once again in fine form for the Blues as they took another big step towards lifting the title in May.
And the summer signing used his personal Instagram account to reveal his delight at helping Chelsea claim all three points on Saturday.
Kante posted the picture above on the app and wrote: “Game after game, always giving the best we can for the Blues. A deserved victory for my Chelsea and my dedicated teammates.”
Chelsea are 13 points clear at the top of the table.
