“World class” – Chelsea fans in awe of 29-year-old after Leeds “masterclass”

Perhaps one of the most under-appreciated players in the Premier League – Ngolo Kante’s sensational performances often go under the radar, but not today.

The 29-year-old produced a man of the match performance in todays 0-0 draw against Leeds United, with his first half performance in particular leaving Blues fans purring.

Kante struggled to influence the side under Frank Lampard at times playing in a midfield three – he was often forced out wide.

But under Thomas Tuchel, and playing in a midfield duo, Kante has come into his own and we are starting to see performances on the level that earned him a move to Chelsea.

Kante took the Premier League by storm in 2016 and Leicester romped to the title, with the Frenchman at the heart of their success.

In his first season at Chelsea he ensured he won back-to-back Premier League titles, with Antonio Conte’s side claiming crown in 2017.

It won’t be the title this season for Chelsea – their eyes are firmly fixed on the top four.

The Blues are unbeaten in 12 games under Tuchel, but lost ground in the race for the Champions League spots at Elland Road today, with their competitors to play later this weekend.

It’s undoubtedly two points dropped for Tuchel’s side, but the manner of the performance will certainly have pleased him and it extends his unbeaten run.

The one performance that caught Chelsea fans eyes though, was that of Kante.

Here’s what they had to say on Twitter….
