There is no one else like Kante at Chelsea. His presence in the midfield in the game against Liverpool transformed the entire team. There was not a trace of a scratch or bruise from the Manchester United game. The Blues looked like a completely different outfit there.
Kante was everywhere on the field that day. He was at the front with the attackers creating chances. He was at the back with the defenders protecting the goal and building play with Jorginho in the middle. He received heavy praise from his manager who will be expecting an encore from him.
Chelsea have never lost two opening games of a League season since 1973/74. If Chelsea are to keep that record in tact and even go for their first Premier League win under Lampard’s regime, Kante will have to shoulder a lot of responsibility. How the diminutive French midfielder fares will determine the outcome of the Chelsea vs Leicester City match.
