Chelsea beat rejuvenated Fulham by putting two unreplied goals past them during their clash at Stamford bridge in the domestic league fixture corresponding to match day 14 in the current campaign.
France International, N’Golo Kante ensured that the Blues didn’t have to wait for long before getting the opener as he intercepted a pass from the visitors after just four minutes of play before laying a wonderful assist for Pedro to finish.
He then went on to boss the midfield after the opener as he sat deep in the midfield in what suggests that he is more comfortable with his role as a deep lying midfielder than the advanced role he has been deployed by their new coach, Maurizio Sarri.
His impressive display during the match has not gone in noticed by their fans as they have been on social media reacting.
What fans are saying:
Absolutely agree Jorginho needs a rest. Kante playing in his natural position, with two of 3 between RLC, Kovacic and Barkley.

Premier League Reveals When Fans Will Return To Stadium
The Premier League has said it is optimistic that “we will see fans back in the stadiums next season”. However, the crowds are likely to return “on a phased basis”.
Football will resume on June 17, following a three-month shut down because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Games will be played behind closed doors at venues yet to be decided.
Masters also disclosed that some of the remaining matches in this season’s competition could be played at neutral venues. However, a decision on that will be reached by the end of next week.
English Premier League Set To Resume June 17

According to reports, the matches are the two games in hand before a complete fixture list would then be played from June 19 to 21.
Recall that on Wednesday, all the 20 clubs in the league vote unanimously to begin contact training.
Germany’s Bundesliga resumed earlier this month and La Liga in Spain hopes to return from June 11.
No matches have been played since Leicester’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on March 9.
Man Utd Manager, Solskjaer Hopes Ighalo Will Stay With Team
Former Super Eagles forward, Ighalo, was signed from the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, but his short-term deal expires at the end of May.
Despite United’s interest in extending Ighalo’s stay, Shanghai is reportedly keen for him to return to China for the start of their season.
“The loan deal went to the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back,” Solskjaer said.
“We’re in dialogue and hopefully (he can stay). They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allow him to play for his dream club. It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, maybe with a trophy or two. But at the moment nothing’s been agreed yet. Their league is going to start soon so we are just waiting to see.”
Ighalo scored four goals in three starts and made eight appearances in total for United.
