Chelsea's N'Golo Kante Dominates Europa League Final With Knee Brace

N'Golo Kante passed a late fitness test to start for Chelsea in the Europa League final, and he ran the midfield.

The diminutive Frenchman appeared set to miss the Europa League final after failing to shrug off a knee injury, but Maurizio Sarri named him in his starting XI.

Kante took up a position in the middle of the park and he dominated the engine room of the pitch, overpowering Lucas Torreira who left the field in tears.

His superb performance was the talk of the game. Here's some reaction from Twitter:

Chelsea's No.7 played the full 90 minutes in a knee brace as he secured yet another piece of silverware since moving to England.
