N'Golo Kante Sends James Milner Into Early Retirement With A Filthy Nutmeg

N'Golo Kante humiliated James Milner by pulling off the most casual nutmeg in Chelsea's Super Cup clash with Liverpool.

Reds left-back Andy Robertson chased after the French midfielder, who quickly turned and found Milner trying his luck against him.

But Kante, 28, wasted no time in removing Milner from the match by slotting the ball through his legs with the simplest of touches.

The Chelsea midfielder's complete humiliation of Milner has reminded fans of how Barcelona captain Lionel Messi took the former Manchester City man apart in the Champions League last season.

And fans have loved every minute of Kante's nutmeg and have flooded social media with messages praising his amazing nutmeg.

Chelsea took the lead in the first half after Christian Pulisic tore open the Liverpool defence with an exquisite ball to Olivier Giroud, who slotted it past Adrian with ease.

But Liverpool bounced back minutes into the second half as Fabinho lifted the ball over the top to Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian striker reacted quicker than Kepa Arrizabalaga and flicked the ball to his right where Sadio Mane was waiting to poke the ball over the line.

Chelsea fans have also flooded Twitter in the first half after they spotted that Jorginho's name was misspelt on the back of his shirt.

Was Kante's nutmeg on Milner better than Messi's?

Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE: Liverpool have beaten Chelsea on penalties to win the Super Cup.
