N’Golo Kante took the time out to send a special message to Ryan Mason in the wake of Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Hull City on Sunday.

The midfielder suffered a fractured skull in a clash with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in the first half of the Premier League clash and had to be carried off on a stretcher before undergoing surgery.

Chelsea secured the three points thanks to goals from Diego Costa and Cahill at Stamford Bridge as they moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

However, summer Chelsea signing Kante was quick to pay tribute to Mason and send his best wishes to the midfielder.

Kante posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Tough fight for a deserved victory yesterday. But more important, I wish @ryan8mason a speedy recovery after his unfortunate collision with @garyjcahill. See you soon on the pitch!”
