The midfielder helped Antonio Conte’s men beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

And Manchester United legend Ferdinand has heaped praise on Kante following his solid displays for the Blues this term.

Speaking to BT Sport on Wednesday night, Ferdinand said: “He’s so impressive. His speed, his agility, his anticipation… he stays on his feet, which is key.

“And when he wins it, he then drives and goes at the defence and tries to have an effect on the game. He’s a fantastic all-round player.”
