Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante produced an impressive midfield display as Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium.
Jamie Redknapp believes Kante is a nightmare to play against because he covers so much ground.
“I remember standing with Leicester’s coaches on the final day of last season and was asking about how important N’Golo Kante was to their midfield,” Redknapp told Daily Mail.
“They told me: ‘We play Kante on the left, Danny Drinkwater in the middle and Kante on the right! Kante is like a mole – he pops up all over the pitch!’
“He is a nightmare to play against because he covers so much ground, puts you under pressure and never wastes the ball.
“He was superb against Middlesbrough on Sunday and you only have to look at how much Leicester have struggled without him to see the impact he makes.”
