THOMAS TUCHEL was left stunned by N’Golo Kante’s sensational opener for Chelsea against Leicester this afternoon.
The Blues boss looked shocked as his midfielder lashed home a left-footed effort after carving through the Foxes’ midfield.

And Tuchel, 48, almost appeared bewildered by what had happened – holding his arms up as if almost in apology.
Kante had received the ball from Reece James just inside Leicester’s half.
He weaved through the Foxes non-existent midfield, as their defence continued to back off.
And as he reached the edge of the penalty area, the Frenchman fired a smooth left-footed drive beyond Kasper Schmeichel and into the corner to give his side a 2-0 lead.
Kante had no issue celebrating against his former side, as the lovable star was mobbed by his team-mates.
At Tuchel’s reaction, one fan laughed: “Tuchel is too joke. The way he held his hands in apology after Kante scored.”

And a third commented: “Tuchel is baffled how Kante managed that shot.”

The German defender headed home Ben Chilwell’s corner as he was given the freedom of Leicester’s penalty area.
Brendan Rodgers’ side struggled to contain the Blues in the first-half, with the visitors dominating for large spells.
