The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern aren’t sure what to make of this…
Everyone in the Tavern has been impressed with N’Golo Kante’s start to life at Chelsea.
The French midfielder has settled into life in the English capital well, immediately becoming a key part of the Chelsea midfield and making his £30m fee look like a bargain.
His arrival in London has been equally felt at his old club, Leicester, who have lacked a player of quality since his departure.
Leicester’s disappointing form has proved what Kante gave to Claudio Ranieri’s side last season – and what he will give to Chelsea this season.
But whilst Kante’s form in London has been, by all accounts, spectacular – all may not be as it seems.
As the below Tweet highlights, N’Golo Kante’s form has seemingly not been as good as perceived…
As highlighted, Kante has seemingly been outshone in every crucial area by Everton’s summer signing Idrissa Gueye.
With nearly triple the number of tackles and chances created, and nearly double the number of take-ons – Gueye is seemingly proving more of a hit in the heart of the Everton midfield that Kante is in Chelsea’s.
Our landlord has implored to remind us that stats do not tell a whole story, and whilst that is certainly true – this looks fairly clearcut.
Did Chelsea go after the wrong midfielder?
Chelsea fans – Do you agree?
