Chelsea midfielder Kante: Always special to score and win against Leicester

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante was delighted with his goal in victory at Leicester City.

That it came against his former club only added to its significance, and after the shot bent into the corner of the net Kante couldn't contain a big smile spreading across his face. It crowned a typically enterprising run from the middle of the park.

"It was a good goal and I'm happy with that," said the midfielder to Chelsea's website.

"I anticipated the pass of Reece (James). When he gave me the ball I had space in front of me. I tried to run at the defenders and look for the pass, but it was open for the shot, so I shot.

"It's always special to play against Leicester," he added.

"It was an important game for us after the international break to come back with a win. We started the game very well, and I was happy to score and with the performance of the team."
