Leicester fans react on Twitter to N'Golo Kante's 'phenomenal display' against Arsenal

Leicester City lost 2-1 to Arsenal on Sunday - but N'Golo Kante played a starring role.

Leicester City's title hopes took a blow on Sunday afternoon as they were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

The Foxes went into the game with a five-point lead at the top of the table, but that has been cut to just two points after Sunday's loss.

Claudio Ranieri's men did actually take the lead as Jamie Vardy converted from the penalty spot having been fouled by Nacho Monreal, but Theo Walcott snatched an equaliser in the second half, 15 minutes after Leicester defender Danny Simpson was shown a red card.

Leicester looked to be coming away with a point, but were cruelly beaten in stoppage time as Danny Welbeck headed home Mesut Ozil's free kick to blow the title race wide open.

Leicester fans will naturally be disappointed to have lost in such heartbreaking circumstances, but they were once again impressed with N'Golo Kante.

The French midfielder, 24, has been a sensation in the Premier League ever since signing from Caen last summer, and he again produced a dominant performance in the middle of the park.

He may be small, but Kante isn't afraid to put his foot in, whilst he has racked up 110 interceptions this season - by far the most in the Premier League. With the speed and technical ability to make an impact going forward too, Kante is the ideal box-to-box midfielder, and he again proved his quality against Arsenal.

After the final whistle, Foxes fans took to Twitter to state that they felt Kante was the man of the match, lauding him for his 'phenomenal display' against the Gunners.

Some supporters worried that Leicester may end up losing Kante this summer, and believe he could be one of the club's greatest ever midfielders.
