Chelsea fans on Twitter were less than impressed with N'Golo Kante's performance today.

The Blues staged a dramatic to comeback to win 2-1 away to London rivals Arsenal in what was Mikel Arteta's first home game as head coach of the Emirates Stadium side.

The 28-year-old midfielder, a £32 million signing in 2016 [The Irish Times], is normally so reliable for Chelsea and has been Mr Consistent for a number of years in West London now.

But today was definitely an off-day for the France international, who found himself unable to exert as much influence and dominance over the midfield as he normally does.

 

In fact, Kante has had a difficult couple of weeks really and here's how some Chelsea supporters reacted to his 'stinker' today.

Despite Kante's display, Frank Lampard's side were still able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Jorginho equalised for Chelsea on 83 minutes following questionable goalkeeping from Bernd Leno, before Tammy Abraham struck the winner shortly after to seal a stunning come-from-behind victory.

The West Londoners, who sit fourth in the table, have an 11-point lead over Arteta's side, who are back in 12th as of right now.
