The midfielder was once again impressive in his side's latest win.
They weren’t as dominant as they have been this season, with the final moments a nervy affair, but they held out to secure yet another vital win.
One of their key men was Kante, who put in yet another impressive all-round display that demonstrated why many him consider one of the signings of the summer.
