Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has identified midfielder, Nโ€™Golo Kante as the Blues player that makes the difference in his team.

Tuchel described Kante as a very special player, adding that the France international has an outstanding quality that helps Chelsea.

The German said this ahead of Chelseaโ€™s Premier League clash with Aston Villa on Boxing Day.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Aston Villa clash, Tuchel said, โ€œNโ€™Golo convinced me that he prefers to be on the bench and play some minutes instead of a full rest.

โ€œWe agreed on that in discussion with the play but in checking all his data for the last weeks. He trained light for 20-25 minutes and Iโ€™ve praised him so many times. Of course, he makes the difference because heโ€™s a very very special player.

โ€œIโ€™ve said it 100 times, and can repeat it another 100 times, there are no more words, it is an outstanding quality that helps every team in the world.โ€

Kante has been impressive for Chelsea since joining the west London club from Leicester City in 2016.
