Having knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup, Kante and Chelsea face Tottenham in the semifinal, due to be played on either April 22 or 23.

Pogba moved to Manchester United in a world-record £90m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the summer transfer window after the versatile midfielder won three successive Italian top-flight titles.

The 25-year-old was everywhere - covering ground, intercepting, tackling, and even found time to score the victor five minutes into the second half.

The defensive midfielder scored Chelsea's second-half victor in a 1-0 victory over 20-time English champions Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge.

On Monday night against Manchester United, it was Nemanja Matic that got the opportunity to play alongside Kante, and the Serbian was treated to a midfield masterclass from his teammate.

"I don't see anyone with the influence he has on team".

Former Newcastle and England striker Alan Shearer said Kante was odds on to be named the PFA Player of the Year for his impressive first season at Stamford Bridge.

"If he starts scoring goals regularly, I think you can just could he's the best midfielder in the world, full stop".

"We have to win every game". The next game in the league, we have to prepare very well [for] this game.

'He didn't especially tell me that, but we know he was a midfielder, we know his career, we can respect what he did, ' he said.

"Tottenham was our last defeat, we have to keep going, we react very well after Tottenham and we have to keep going".

Rashford ensured the Red Devils were not going to give up without a fight, turning in and outside of Cahill before getting a sight of Courtois's goal.
