Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel named a key player for the club.
"N’Golo Kante is our Mo Salah, he is our Van Dijk, he is our De Bruyne, he is our Neymar, he is our Kylian Mbappe. I think he is our key, key, key player,” Tuchel told reporters. “But the key, key, key players need to be on the pitch and he has played only 40% of the games, so it is maybe a miracle that we arrive in third place," the Daily Mail quoted Tuchel as saying.
Kante played 41 games in this season for Chelsea, scoring two goals and providing five assists.
