Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante was heavily criticised on Twitter following his performance in Tuesday's 3-2 defeat against Bayern Munich in Singapore.
And despite his unerringly consistent displays in a Chelsea shirt last season, some have already started to doubt his capability of playing in the Champions League next season.
Here are some of the most condemning comments on Kante's performance on Twitter following the defeat.
Renato Sanches is still so raw and yet he's clowning Kante 🤣— 🔌 (@A2Dubie) July 25, 2017
Sanches spun Kante back to his ancestors in Mali.— Danny T. (@King__Danny) July 25, 2017
Kante fraud season coming. Just like Hazard and Mahrez. Remember this tweet— 🦇 (@CurryMerchant) July 25, 2017
Kante gonna have issues in the Champions League. Bayern is really toying with Chelsea 😂— S.Muḥammed (@SheikhMehmet) July 25, 2017
Kante's performance has led some to doubt over the use of the Frenchman alongside Fabregas in a midfield two.
Fabregas played in a deeper role which left Kante at times as a lone figure, chasing shadows in midfield as Bayern controlled the game.
"It was a good game. We played against a good team. We tried to give our best but they played very well. They scored early in the game," he told Goal. "So it was a little bit difficult after 3-0 but we reacted very well and finished with 3-2.
"The second half was a little bit better from our side. We got a difficult start but I enjoyed it as it was good atmosphere. It’s just a game. We all had to enjoy it and work on our fitness and get some things in the squad."
