Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante scored the only goal of the game as Chelsea defeated Manchester United 1-0 to advance to the semifinal of the FA Cup on Monday night.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes Kante is exceptional and world class.

“There were many slick, sharp passing movements and a dynamism throughout the entire team and if you use the word dynamism, I believe you are legally obliged to say the name N’Golo Kante in the same sentence,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.

“If he actually starts regularly scoring goals like the one he smashed in to win this tie, then it is just bordering on unfair on the rest of the teams. Once again he was exceptional, world class and no one deserved the goal more than him.

“He knows how to tackle better than anyone else and maybe that was one area where United fell down.”
