Thierry Henry: This Chelsea star is amazing, he has no flaws
Thierry Henry heaps praise on N'Golo Kante following the midfielder's strong start to life at Chelsea
Thierry Henry has heaped praise on N’Golo Kante following the midfielder’s brilliant form for Chelsea this season.
The Frenchman has been a regular fixture in the Blues team this term and has earned plenty of praise for his performances for Antonio Conte’s men to help the west London side move to the top of the Premier League table.
Kante has started all but one of Chelsea’s Premier League games this season to help Conte’s men build a 10-point lead at the top of the table.
The midfielder earned new admirers last season as he helped to inspire Leicester City to the Premier League title under Claudio Ranieri.
And Kante has continued his fine form for the Blues this season, establishing himself as one of the west London club’s most important players.
And former Arsenal captain Henry has lavished praise on Kante for his brilliant displays for Chelsea so far this season.
Writing in his column for The Sun, Henry said: “Kante reads mistakes before they’ve been made. He reads the bounce of the ball before the ball knows where it’s going!
“People talk about a striker’s sixth sense in the area. N’Golo has that all over the park. It’s why Chelsea are unstoppable.
“He is everywhere, his stats are amazing: Top of tackles, interceptions, distance run . . . I reckon he could ref the game too.
“He has zero flaws. I keep thinking, surely he’s going to lose the ball this week? Nope. Or get angry and argue with the ref? Nope. Maybe he’ll be tired? Nope.”
