Speaking after Kante scored the winning goal in Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday, Conte said the France global had become a "top player" and was justifying the decisions of both the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association to name him the best player in the Premier League in 2016-17.
Goals from Pedro, new boys Davide Zappacosta and Tiemoue Bakayoko, Cesar Azpilicueta, Michy Batshuayi and an own goal on Tuesday made it seem as if Chelsea had never been away from the competition, even though they had been forced to watch from afar for a year. "In France, he was a very good goal scorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday's game". Let's hope that he continues to develop alongside Kante at the heart of Chelsea's midfield.
N'Golo Kante described his long-awaited Champions League debut as "special" after producing a typically dominant midfield display to help Chelsea mark their return to the competition with a 6-0 rout of Qarabag.
"I know he was in Chelsea for many years, I had the chance to play one year with him and he was a very good player for me". I was sure to join this good club.
Are Nicki Minaj And Nas Dating?
The insider said, "Nicki and Nas are just close friends, and it's entirely platonic". Minaj, 34, even posted a picture of the two of them from the event on her Instagram.
They have have now won four consecutive games, and some of that clearly comes from the PFA and FWA player of the year applying the same consistency of mentality that marked his performances last season.
After a opening day defeat to Burnley, champions Chelsea have started to hit their stride, but Kante has warned them from complacency against the Gunners - especially with £52million man Lacazette having been added to the Gunners armoury. "We know how they play, and we fight to win".
'We need to win, because it's important for us. We need everyone this month'. Now it's the beginning, we can not expect to do the same. "We play Arsenal on Sunday and we will give everything to win". It is one reason Chelsea feel back to normal, because he still feels he's such a normal player.
