Kante spent Saturday evening at a fan’s house after missing his train to Paris.
Kante was in action on Saturday afternoon, playing the entire 90 minutes as Maurizio Sarri’s side came from a goal behind to win 4-1 at Stamford Bridge.

to Paris later that evening but missed his Eurostar train from London St Pancras.
In an attempt to kill some time, the 27-year-old looked up the nearest mosque, where he met a group of fans who invited him back to their house for dinner.
The World Cup winner ended up spending the evening at the house, joining the group of friends for a curry dinner before playing video games and watching his own performance on television highlights.
The fortunate Twitter user @jahul999 said in his post: “World Cup winner, former Premier League player of the year, two-time Premiership winner casually joined us to watch MOTD after visiting a local mosque.
