N'Golo Kante Is Taking A LOT Of Criticism For His FA Cup Final Performance
It's not often that this has been said over the past two seasons, but N'Golo Kante is coming in for a fair amount of criticism for his performance, today.
The French midfielder, who just weeks ago was crowned the PFA Player Of The Year after helping Chelsea to the Premier League title, just a year after inspiring Leicester City to the same achievement, was far from his best and also appeared to be at fault for Aaron Ramsey's winning goal.

The Premier League champions' hopes of a domestic double were dashed by a spirited Arsenal side in a 2-1 defeat at Wembley, this afternoon and Antonio Conte's team's chances weren't helped by Kante enduring a rare off day.
Of course, given how much praise the former Leicester man has received over the course of this season, much of it deserved, but some of it naturally exacerbated to an almost unbearable degree, social media couldn't wait to rip the French midfielder to pieces.
We need 7 new players. Costa, Matic, Kanté, Cahill, Luiz, Pedro and Moses all need to leave. I'm not trolling.- ㅤㅤ (@SFEH_Jr) May 27, 2017
By the way Xhaka and Ramsey absolutely destroyed Kante & Matic! #levels- seoirse (@seoirsemac) May 27, 2017

Where are all the Kante fanboys today? Another big game bottled :kissing_heart:- MJ (@poshFFCrudeboy) May 27, 2017
Somehow, I doubt Antonio Conte will be rushing to sell the all action Frenchman, just yet. If Twitter meltdowns really led to manager's taking action, Paul Pogba would have been offloaded to Northampton in October.
