N’Golo Kante nutmegged Tottenham’s Heung-min Son at Stamford Bridge last night – and Kurt Zouma absolutely loved to see it.
Kante is one of the best players on the planet and among the frontrunners for the Ballon D’Or. That’s mostly as a result of his tireless and dependable defensive work.
However, a hugely underrated feature of the Frenchman’s game is his ability going forward, an attribute he gave us a little teaser of during a pre-season clash with Tottenham on Wednesday night.
Kante won the ball back off of Dele Alli, before cooly slotting it through the legs of Heung-min Son, before playing the pass and casually jogging on as if nothing happened.
Keep an eye on Kurt Zouma’s reaction as the ball goes through the legs…

For such a modest and humble man and player, Kante really does give us so many moments to cherish. What a truly fantastic footballer he is.
