Gary Lineker reacts on Twitter to Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Man United

The Match Of The Day host had plenty to say about Chelsea's 4-0 win over Manchester United

Gary Lineker heaped praise on N’Golo Kante after Chelsea were 4-0 winners against Manchester United on Sunday evening.

The France international started in the heart of Antonio Conte’s midfield for the visit of the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and his Red Devils side.

First-half goals from Pedro Rodriguez and Gary Cahill put the home side in charge as the west London side looked to hoist themselves back into the top four.

Belgium international Eden Hazard extended Chelsea’s lead in the 61st minute before Kante polished off a commanding win with a superb solo goal nine minutes later.

Former Tottenham striker Lineker singled out Kante for special praise and admitted that Leicester City miss the France defensive midfielder badly.

Kante moved to Chelsea in a £30m deal from Premier League champions Leicester in the summer transfer window.
