Leicester City fans react on Twitter to N'Golo Kante's performance against Crystal Palace

Leicester City beat Crystal Palace 1-0, to move up to fifth in the Premier League table.

Leicester City supporters have hailed N'Golo Kante's performance in their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace yesterday afternoon.

Kante's form for Leicester has largely gone under-the-radar, because of Jamie Vardy's goalscoring run, but the Malian international is quickly becoming a fans' favourite at the King Power Stadium.

Kante was tireless against Palace, and his performance was every bit as important as Vardy's, who netted the winner, to take his total to 10 goals for the season.

He set the tone for the Foxes, as he provided an effective shield for their defence and also managed to get forward with regularity.

It was a display which highlighted all of his best qualities, and he seems to be forming a very dynamic partnership with Danny Drinkwater in the centre of the pitch. 

Drinkwater's passing and combativeness, compliments Kante's all-action style well, and they have been vital in Claudio Ranieri's side's good start to the campaign. 

Leicester's win over Palace has lifted them up to fifth in the Premier League table, and supporters of the Midlands club were effusive with their praise for Kante on social media site Twitter last night.
