N'Golo Kante made his debut for Chelsea last night and for Leicester City supporters it was not easy or pleasant viewing.

Kante was Leicester's sensational bargain signing from Caen last summer, and played a major role in helping them stun the football world and win the Premier League title.

The midfielder's performances saw him nominated in the final six for the PFA Player of the Year award, and called into the France squad for Euro 2016.

The fairytale came to an abrupt end this summer when Chelsea triggered his release clause, and unlike Jamie Vardy snubbing Arsenal, Kante decided to leave.

This was despite Leicester having Champions League football on offer and Chelsea not even being in the Europa League this season.

Leicester lost their Premier League opener against Hull, while Kante's Chelsea went on to beat West Ham 2-1.

Kante was booked after just three minutes of the match, but manged to keep in check and remain on the pitch, as Diego Costa netted a late winner.

For Leicester fans watching him it was a mix of emotions. From anger, admiration and bitterness, it was all there.
