IT'S OFFICIAL: N'Golo Kante Is Not Human, And His Incredible Stats Prove It
Barcelona vs. Chelsea confirmed a few things; Lionel Messi is f*cking outrageous (probably not human, too) and N'Golo Kante is an absolute machine.
While the diminutive Frenchman was on the losing side, he produced a starring role for Chelsea in the middle of the park.
If you think he's just a ball winner, then you're wrong.
• 8 tackles attempted- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) March 15, 2018
• 8 tackles won
• 4 interceptions
"He's the Messi of winning the ball back!" :muscle:
Water covers 71% of the earth's surface...they say N'Golo Kanté covers the rest :raised_hands: pic.twitter.com/6okvdqG6lp
Kante was not only tackling and recovering balls - which included 13 balls recovery, 12 duels won and eight tackles, but also creating attacks, forging an impressive 96% pass completion.
Not to mention three successful dribbles and one key pass.
Messi wasn't the only outstanding individual on the pitch last night as Kante cemented himself as one of, if not the, best defensive midfielder on the planet.
Naturally, Kante's heroics got everybody talking. Here's some reaction to his brilliant performance against Barcelona:
I was speaking to many Spanish-Catalan journalist last night and they all were praising N'Golo Kante's display. One told me: "I have never such such positive consensus among the group for an away player, than I saw for Kante last night." #CFC #UCL #FCB

Dont let Messi FC destroying us distract from the fact Kante has dropped a 9/10 and is the best DM in the world

N'Golo Kante has wiped the floor with the so-called best midfield in the world over two legs. If you don't think he's the best DM in the world, you're either clueless or racist.

N'golo Kante is not human. What a game he has played today despite the result. Everywhere on the pitch.

Kante is starting to prove his serious worth. Honestly people can't be trolling on his name anymore. He's unreal.

Kante is the best ball winning midfielder I've ever seen.

Best Kanté performance I've ever seen. Superb recuperations and his touch never let him down. Better than all the Barca mids out there tonight.

I honestly feel sorry for Kanté and Willian. They've been let down by the rest.
