Garth Crooks has wondered why Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante doesn’t take more shots after his brilliant goal in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Leicester on Saturday.
Crooks told BBC: “He’s very capable of this so I don’t know why he doesn’t do it more often. N’Golo Kante’s 28th-minute strike with his left foot was as clean as it was brilliant.
“Kante is back to his best but looking more comfortable on the ball than I’ve ever seen him.
“Normally you soon find out who the best 11 players are in any given team. The beauty about this Chelsea side is I don’t know what their best team is. Whoever comes in seems to fit the system perfectly and once in, it’s very difficult to get him out.
“It’s a system that can only be deployed if you’ve got the depth of squad and the quality of players to do it.”
Only Chris Wood (four) and Emile Heskey (three) have scored more Premier League goals against Leicester as a former player than Chelsea’s Kante (two).
