According to Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips, Chelsea aren’t the same team without N’Golo Kante.
Phillips admits he was in awe of N’Golo Kante on when both sides met on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, a game Chelsea won 3-1.
Phillips told BBC Leeds: “I think Kante was unbelievable during that game, he was everywhere, didn’t look like he broke a sweat.
“When you see stuff like that you think when you’re running around obviously and you’re tired and you look at Kante and he’s just jogging around as if it’s nowt, it kind of – not demoralises you but – [makes you think] this is going to be a difficult second half.
“It’s hard to say a player is that good and that fit and everywhere but he was. Literally, any second ball that dropped, he was there, any 50:50 that was there, he was there, so he was at the right place at the right time every single time.
“I think without Kante, they’re not the same team.”
