The Chelsea midfielder reflects on their 4-0 win against Brentford in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday evening
N’Golo Kante has spoken of his pride at his Chelsea team-mates after the Premier League leaders reached the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday afternoon after their 4-0 win against Brentford.
The Blues have the opportunity to complete the double in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at the west London outfit after the Italian took over the reins from Guus Hiddink in the summer transfer window.
Chelsea were 4-1 winners against Championship side Peterborough United in the previous round and Conte’s side hosted second-tier opposition in the fifth round at Stamford Bridge.
Brazil international Willian broke the deadlock before Spain winger Pedro Rodriguez extended their lead to put Chelsea into a commanding 2-0 lead on home turf.
Branislav Ivanovic scored a rare goal to make it 3-0 before summer signing Michy Batshuayi netted their fourth from the penalty spot.
Kante posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption: “On our way to the next round. So proud of my mates for the job done today.”
Chelsea are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and eight points ahead of second-placed Arsenal.
