Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Manchester City put any talk of an end season collapse on the back burner, at least for now. The Blues needed to come back strong after the loss to Crystal Palace and did just that, essentially ending any chances that City themselves may have had of winning the title.
In a game against such opposition, top players are the ones who work hardest. N’Golo Kante has been Chelsea’s midfield machine effectively all season, and has even had memes inspired by his ability to cover ground.
Yet he wasn’t the one who put in the biggest shift for the league leaders last night.
That honour went to Man of the Match and scorer of both of Chelsea’s goals, Eden Hazard. The Belgian had a night to remember personally, as he stepped up to the plate when his side needed him.
However, he made sure not to neglect putting in a shift for the side, as evidenced by a GIF posted on Twitter.
