Thomas Tuchel Attempted To Get Some Emotion From N'Golo Kante At Full-Time But It Didn't Work
After the final whistle blew, Tuchel congratulated many of his players on the Stamford Bridge pitch, including Kante.
The German manager clearly tries to get some emotion from the World Cup winner, gassing him up after a solid performance in the middle of the park, but Kante wasn't having any of it.

Tuchel recently declared his admiration for Kante after he blew him away in Chelsea training.
"I think N'Golo fits into any manager's plans on the planet. I was desperate to have him in my teams [in the past]," Tuchel told reporters.
"I am so happy to have him back again. We put him on the pitch against Tottenham and he helped everybody on the pitch, which is what he does.
"To see the guy live, to see how he works, how humble he is, the quality he gives to the team. I am so humble to be his coach."
