David Luiz has heaped praise on N’Golo Kante for the impact he has had at Chelsea this season.

The France international moved to the Blues from Leicester City last summer and has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea first team since then.

Kante earned plenty of praise for his performances for Leicester last season as Claudio Ranieri’s men upset the odds and won the Premier League title.

And the midfielder has slotted seamlessly into Antonio Conte’s line-up at Stamford Bridge following his move in the summer.

Luiz, who himself returned to Chelsea in the summer from Paris Saint-Germain, has been very impressed with the impact Kante has had since his move back to the club.

Speaking in an interview with Chelsea’s website, Luiz said: “N’Golo Kante’s history is amazing, as is his play. I love him and I think everyone has already seen that I have a good relationship with him.

“He was playing in lower divisions and was getting better and better and now he is one of the best midfielders in the world.

“For Leicester he was one of the keys for the title, and I hope he can be one of the keys for the title this season too!”

Chelsea are currently flying high at the top of the Premier League table as Luiz looks to win the title for the first time with the west London club.
