N'Golo Kante Thought He Fouled Brighton Player And Ran Back Into Position In Wholesome Moment
Only N'Golo Kante would think he committed the foul when he had in fact been fouled himself.
The unassuming midfield dynamo came off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Brighton last night and he was his usual harrying self in the middle of the park.
In the 88th minute, Kante won the ball back off Steven Alzate, with the 23-year-old ending up on the turf in the duel.
He was appealing for a foul and when referee Mike Dean blew his whistle, Kante trotted back into position.
Because of the character that he is, there was no remonstrating whatsoever from Kante and he just got on with it.
However, the Frenchman was surprised to see that Dean had actually given the foul in Kante's favour.

Kante has been struggling with an injury this season and was on the bench on Wednesday night after suffering another blow against Aston Villa.
The former Leicester City man is easily the most humble footballer around even with all the success and love he gets following his rise to prominence.
Recently, Kante opened up about the many rejections he faced and how he never forgot where he came from.
"It's not necessarily staying humble," he told Chelsea's official website as he celebrated five years of playing for the club.
"To get here, to join Chelsea, the French team, was a long journey with a lot of setbacks. From a young age, training centres didn't accept me.
"I failed numerous times at attempts to join professional teams. It's just being grateful for my journey, remembering all the people I have met and also wanted this career, to make a living out of football.
"I succeed and it's about enjoying it all. It's knowing how far I've come and enjoying it all, going as far as I can while I can."
