Gary Lineker reacts to N’Golo Kante’s performance in Chelsea’s 3-1 win at Man City
The Tottenham legend discusses the impact that N'Golo Kante has had on Chelsea this season
Gary Lineker believes N’Golo Kante is making the difference at Chelsea this season after their 3-1 win at Manchester City on Saturday.
The France international was a key part of Leicester City’s side last season as Claudio Ranieri’s men were crowned 2015-16 Premier League champions.
Kante completed a £32m move to Chelsea from the top-flight holders in the summer transfer window after just one season at the King Power Stadium.
The Blues midfielder has quickly established himself as one of Antonio Conte’s most-important players alongside Nemanja Matic.
And Kante produced another dominant performance against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Former Tottenham striker Lineker took to Twitter to single out Kante for special praise after Chelsea’s 3-1 win at their title rivals.
Leicester with Kante: Champions. Without Kante: struggling. Chelsea last season: struggled. With Kante: Top. Coincidence? I don't think so.
