N'Golo Kanté vs. Burnley: All hail the Mighty Midfield Mouse, the First of His Name

New, comments

Eden Hazard put on a show Saturday, but he was hardly alone. In fact, Eden was asked after the match what he thought of N'Golo Kanté's performances and importance to Chelsea's prospects this season and beyond. Hazard likened the new signing to a rat, or a mouse as was later explained to Kanté.

Obviously Eden doesn't mean "rat" in the same sense as certain Chelsea fans meant it last year in regards to "Mourinho-betrayer" Hazard himself. Instead, it's a compliment for Kanté's indefatigable running, relentless hassling, and superb passing.

N'Golo Kanté, the difference maker.
