N’Golo Kante gave a man-of-the-match performance on Monday night as Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0 to reach the quarterfinal of the FA Cup.

He scored the only goal of the game and was very effective for Chelsea in midfield, having the better of Paul Pogba all through the game.

Frank Lampard called him the best central midfielder in the world on Monday, and the best central midfielder in the world still wants to improve. Surely, United and Co wouldn’t like this.

Kante said: “We know he (Conte) was a midfielder, we know his career, we can respect what he did. When he gives you advice, I have to understand and try to improve.

“Not especially to score goals. But when I have the pass, to look forward, to try to make me improve. But also when we have the chance to score, we like to create chances and score.

“It’s important. Sometimes it could make the difference for the team, for the game, and when we have the chances to score, we have to score.”
