Stats that proves N’golo Kante is a Potential Ballon D’or winner



It is unfair to single out just one player after Chelsea’s heroic Champions League final win over Man City in Porto, to a man the Blues players just sensational, but it is hard to not feel an enormous sense of joy for Chelsea’s truly world class player and the man who effectively destroyed Manchester City.

Kai Havertz got the winning goal to repay all of his transfer fee, not the gives as he said in his post-match interview, Reece James had a stormer, so did Mason Mount, well they all did. But Kante, wow.

Three tackles made, three tackle completed. Not one City player dribbled past him all night. Ten ball recoveries as well, more than any player on the pitch.

The Chelsea midfielder has been producing world class levels of football for years now but he has saved some of his truly greatest performances for the Champions League this season. He was outstanding in the second leg against Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge, and again for the return game in the semi final against Real Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel often refers to Kante as like having two players in one, such is his insane energy levels. There are always plenty on social media who say Kante is “everywhere” but, in reality he isn’t. Look closer.

While it might appear that the Frenchman is everywhere, he just operates in on defined area under Tuchel, across the middle of the pitch slightly behind the halfway line when the Blues defend. He’s the first line of defence.

It was just that Man City so happened to try and play their football in the area that Kante was playing and whenever they did that, he simply took it off them. Football is a simple game at times but there is an art form to making it look as great as Kante has done, did on Saturday and will probably continue to do so.

While Kante probably won’t win the Ballon D’Or for the best player in the world this season, is there really anyone in world football who is more key to their team, its success and generally more influential not just this season, but since he burst on the scene having signed for Leicester City?

The fact that Chelsea bagged Kante for £30million from the Foxes remains a truly outstanding and bewildering piece of business. Bargain.
