Kante’s incredible stats – He covered 12.11km in the game and wasn’t even ‘match-fit’

Frank Lampard says that you end up not being surprised by the performances of N’Golo Kante, but that isn’t fair on him.

Those words sum it up perfectly. He is a player whom you watch and you just know that he is always going to be the player who steps up, runs the most, plays the best, and hardly ever puts a foot wrong.

He was once again superb against Liverpool yesterday despite being on the losing side. His goal was world class and he was literally everywhere again. It’s a performance we have just grown to expect from Kante now.

You won’t be surprised when you hear that he covered more ground than any other Chelsea player yesterday, running 12.11 kilometres in one match.

He also averaged the highest speed running at 7.39km/h and regained possession the most times at 11. He won 80% of his individual duels. Absolutely incredible stats.

Imagine what he could do if he was match-fit!

Lampard said before the match that Kante was fit again from his recent injury woes, but that he was ‘not match-fit’.

Being not match-fit and still running the most out of any other Chelsea player really is some effort.

Lampard will be hoping to keep him fit now for the rest of the season, because he will need him badly. Kante brings that extra energy and physicality to a midfield that can lack both of those at times.

Kante was one of the positives to take from defeat yesterday for Chelsea, he led the spirited and high intensity performance that Blues fans were impressed by in the second half at Stamford Bridge.

But even Kante’s world class goal was not enough to get Chelsea what they deserved, which was at the very least a point.

And as we all know, points are what counts in this cut-throat Premier League.
