25-year-old Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante produced a Man of the Match performance as Chelsea won Manchester United 1-0 on Monday night at Stamford Bridge to progress to the semifinal of the FA Cup.
Kante hailed the victory over Manchester United as “a very beautiful win” after scoring the only goal of the game.
“I’m happy to score again. It was important for the next round. I’m happy for the win, and for the fans it was a very beautiful win,” Kante told Chelsea TV.
“No [it wasn’t] one of the best but it was an important one and I’m happy for that.
“It was a tough game when it was 11. I think after [Ander] Herrera was sent off it was more easy.
“We got control of the game, were patient and managed to score.”
