Chelsea midfielder Kante delighted with injury management: I'm feeling better

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante insists his groin is feeling good after his impressive cameo against Tottenham on Sunday.

The Frenchman came on at half-time to score in the 3-0 victory.

Kante has been managing a niggling groin injury in recent months, but the 29-year-old is happy with how he has recovered.

On being back in action, Kante told Chelsea's official website: "I am feeling better.

"I think we managed the injury very well. I took time to come onto the pitch and I am happy to be back and I felt very good."

Quizzed on his goal, the World Cup winner added: "It wasn't my most beautiful goal, but it was an important goal and it helped my team.

"Mateo [Kovacic] gave me the ball, I saw that I had time to shoot so I shot, it was a deflection, but I am happy that it touched the post and went in. I am happy that I helped the team."
