Double Kante skill vs Tottenham leaves Chelsea team-mate Zouma gobsmacked
N'Golo Kante is the gift that keeps on giving at Chelsea and his ability and skill continues to surprise teammates, as Kurt Zouma found out.
The French midfielder is a key part of Thomas Tuchel's side but although he is known for his elite-level consistency at mastering the basics, he can still be flashy when he needs to be.
During Chelsea's 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham last night, Kante had a moment of brilliance that was adored by the returning Stamford Bridge fans, leaving Heung-Min Son red-faced.
Even Zouma couldn't hide his reaction to Kante's outrageous piece of skill.
The Frenchman characteristically pounced on a loose Dele Alli pass and then brilliantly poked it through the legs of Son before playing it to Mateo Kovacic, and Zouma's reaction said it all.
Fans couldn't help but share the moment all over social media, and Kante already looks sharp ahead of the Premier League season, which kicks off in just eight days.

Another Chelsea player that looked sharp was Hakim Ziyech, who scored a brace for the Blues on Wednesday night, and Tuchel's side were dominant despite letting their two-goal advantage slip.
Goals from Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn levelled things up for Tottenham during the second half, who would've been the happier side coming away from Stamford Bridge with a draw.
Chelsea face Villarreal on Wednesday in the UEFA Super Cup before hosting Crystal Palace at the weekend as the Premier League returns, and it is yet to be seen whether Romelu Lukaku will be among those at Tuchel's disposal, with a monstrous bid on the table for Inter Milan.
