Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is indeed a rock in the Chelsea midfield, and his place in the team cannot be overemphasised.
The 29-year-old proved his importance in the middle of the park as he made the most interceptions in the year 2020.
According to The Athletic, the stats for the most interceptions was gotten from the combination of both blocked passes and interceptions while also adjusting for possession the player’s team enjoys.
Also, possession is taken into account so that players of bigger clubs, who see more of the ball and have lesser defensive work will have their stats worked out accordingly.
With Kante now more often than not being played deep in midfield, his impact has been clear for all to see.
