​Chelsea manager Tuchel hails 'outstanding' Kante after Leicester display

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel hailed N'Golo Kante's quality as the Blues romped to a 3-0 win over Leicester City.

The Stamford Bridge club did not have to suffer too much against a lacklustre Leicester, with goals from Antonio Rudiger, Kante, and Christian Pulisic sealing the win.

Asked about Kante's goal, which was a stunning solo effort, Tuchel had a lot to say.

"It was a fantastic goal," said the German.

"If you have N'Golo, you have N'Golo — and he's outstanding.

"He seems to find another gear all the time on the pitch.

"It was an excellent performance from him individually, and we're happy that he's back, that he feels good and plays with a free mind.

"When he does this with confidence, he can be the difference."
