Chelsea current pitch captain Gary Cahill praised his team-mate N’Golo Kante after the French midfielder was, once again, determining scoring the winner against Manchester United in FA Cup quarter finals tonight:

“N’Golo has been fantastic,”┬áthe English defender said to BBC Sport after the game.

“You saw what he did last season but he has kicked on again this season. He is so important, especially to us at the back.”

Cahill said that Chelsea had complained about the treatment dished out to Eden Hazard before Herrera saw red:

“There was a few fouls leading up to that, maybe it was silly to go in and make a foul again,” he said.

“We complained that Eden was getting harassed early on. There was many fouls, no dangerous ones.”
