It has been a pretty miserable ten days for Chelsea fans, what with heavy defeats to Bournemouth and Watford combined with transfer rumours surfacing regarding want away players.
While Blues fans are quite rightly frustrated by happenings on and off the field, Antonio Conte’s men are still in the Premier League top four and have a sensational Champions League tie with Barcelona to look forward to.
However, following the clubs’ dismal run of form, it seems that no player is safe from fan criticism, and that includes the much respected N’Golo Kante.
The 26-year-old, who is valued at £54million by Transfermarkt, hasn’t quite found his form this season, especially when compared to the exceptionally high standards he set during his time and Leicester and his debut season at Stamford Bridge.
Frustrated by his inconsistencies, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts as to why Kante has been struggling this season…
Been found out no matic to help him

His quality on the ball was never great. Even in a confident side.
His engine and ball recovery more than made up for it though.
Now he's playing alongside Bakayoko and Chelsea can't keep the ball. Being exposed.

Think he’s been found out. First time he’s playing twice a week and the guy can’t handle it. Good player, not special at all!
