Not content with covering 75 per cent of earth and controlling the midfield, N’Golo Kante is now scoring goals!
The World Cup winner started his first game under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri against Huddersfield and proved to be the most unlikely goalscorer when he found the net 34 minutes into the trip to the John Smith Stadium with a bouncing side-foot volley with his weaker left peg.
Since moving to the Premier League, the 2016/17 PFA Player of the Year has been an utter revelation and will definitely go down as one of the very best additions to English football considering his meteoric rise.
As we know, Kante is not known for scoring goals but he’s kept up his record of scoring at least one goal in a Premier League season by getting off to a flyer this afternoon. He’s already a leading contender to win the Premier League Golden boot with his solitary strike.
Kante’s new midfield partner Jorginho, a summer signing from Napoli, also got on the scoresheet. He marked his Premier League debut with a very cheeky penalty past Ben Hamer to make it 2-0 at half-time.
