N'Golo Kante's Superhuman Performance Against Real Madrid While Fasting Will Go Down In Champions League History
N'Golo Kante covered literally every blade of grass in a colossal Champions League display against Real Madrid.
Kante's 'Man of the Match' showing helped Chelsea beat Real Madrid 2-0 on the night (3-1 on aggregate) as they set up an all-English final against Manchester City.

The diminutive Frenchman, who was fasting, delivered one of his best performances in a Chelsea shirt, absolutely dominating the engine room of the pitch.
He controlled the midfield, negating the threat of Luka Modric and Toni Kroos - breaking up play and setting up attacks in a heroic performance.

Kante played a big role in his side's first goal as Timo Werner headed home from close range to open the scoring at Stamford Bridge.
He continued to orchestrate proceedings in the middle of the park and showed off his blistering pace late on, catching up with Werner in a sublime counter-attack.
His outing is even more impressive when you consider that he's observing Ramadan. What a player.
And let's not forget that Ngolo Kanté is fasting for Ramadan. And still puts another incredible performance tonight! What a player. "The gift", like Thomas Tuchel calls him. pic.twitter.com/ujIUbb4NEl- Julien Laurens (@LaurensJulien) May 5, 2021
