Chelsea fans react to N’Golo Kante’s “ridiculous” first half in preseason

 

Chelsea host Tottenham

Chelsea returned to action as they faced fellow Londoners Tottenham Hotspur in the second game of the Mind Series tournament. Thomas Tuchel’s side had already dispatched Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend, and now played host to a new look Spurs side under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Chelsea opted for a strong starting side, with the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Antonio Rudiger, and it was Ziyech who gave Chelsea the lead in the second minute, firing past Tottenham’s new signing Pierluigi Gollini from the edge of the area.

At half-time, they maintained the 1-0 advantage, but were worryingly (for Tottenham fans) dominant against a timid Spurs side. Of course, Tottenham remain without their star forward Harry Kane, who is demanding a move away this summer.

Kante’s “ridiculous first half”

The main talking point, however, was the performance of midfielder N’Golo Kante, who was truly everywhere in the first half. This prompted a huge wave of appreciation for Kante across social media.

Despite his ageing body, Kante has shown in just 45 minutes just how important he is to Thomas Tuchel’s side.
