Alan Shearer admits he finds N’Golo Kante’s energy levels staggering after Chelsea were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday night.
The Blues midfielder produced another dominant performance in the Chelsea side as Antonio Conte’s side eased past their bitter rivals to set up a FA Cup semi-final meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.
Indeed, Kante proved to be Chelsea’s unlikely match-winner after the defensive midfielder scored a long-range goal in the second half to take his tally to two goals since moving to Stamford Bridge.
In fact, the 26-year-old’s first Chelsea goal was in the west London side’s 4-0 win against Manchester United in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge back in October.
Speaking to BBC Sport about the defensive midfielder’s influential role in Chelsea’s FA Cup victory over their former manager Jose Mourinho, England and Newcastle United legend Shearer said:
“The energy he has is staggering.”
Chelsea signed Kante in a £30m deal from defending Premier League champions Leicester City back in last summer’s transfer window.
