Lineker makes a joke when describing Leicester star’s superb performance

Leicester City

Leicester City defeated Swansea City 4-0 this weekend.

Gary Lineker took to social networking site Twitter in order to make a joke over Leicester City star N’Golo Kante’s superb performance during his side’s crushing 4-0 win over Swansea City.

The Foxes took one step closer to a remarkable Premier League title triumph as goals from Riyad Mahrez, Leonardo Ulloa (2) and Marc Albrighton saw them convincingly beat the Swans.

It was another excellent display full of attacking verve and endeavour, the sort of traits we have become so accustomed to seeing when Claudio Ranieri’s men take to the field.

But amid the attacking brilliance, the Foxes were once again so reliable at the back with Kante again proving why he is one of the best signings of the season with another super display.

Marveling at his excellence, Lineker joked that the France international could intercept an asteroid.

The 25-year-old has been such a key performer for Leicester this season, a situation nobody could have predicted after he arrived at the club last summer as an unknown quantity to most top-flight observers.

The win takes Leicester momentarily eight points clear of Tottenham Hotspur who have a game in hand. The Foxes finish their season with Manchester United (A), Everton (H) and Chelsea (A).
