Leicester City defender Robert Huth has praised his former teammate N’Golo Kante following his impressive performances for Chelsea sine his switch to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Both players played for the Foxes in their fairy tale season last year before the France international opted to move away from Kings Power Stadium.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte paid £32 million for the midfielder during the summer and the player has lived up to expectations with his brilliant display this term. Huth disclosed his admiration for the player despite his exit from Leicester.
“I think N’Golo Kante is the best player in the Premier League,” Huth sensationally exclaimed.
Chelsea are set to continue their winning streak when they face West Brom in the Premier League. Since the change in tactics, the Blues have gone on to win nine straight games and are set to break the club’s all time wining streak of 11. Kante has been a key part of the 3-4-3 formation Conte has been employing. With the absence of distractions, Chelsea are poised to go far in their title chase this season.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville was all praise for Kante as well after Chelsea humbled Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City 3-1. Diego Costa stole the show but Nevilled opined that Kante was the one.
“I gave Diego Costa the man of the match but I’ve got to mention N’Golo Kante. N’Golo Kante was brilliant,” the Sky Sports pundit said.
Chelsea are currently topping the standings due to their brilliant run in Conte’s debut season. Despite a slow start, the team has established itself as a team to beat this term. All the other top sides that started well seem to be bowing to Chelsea’s superiority and the confidence in the team is off the roof.
