Cape Town - Leicester City skipper Wes Morgan has paid tribute to N'Golo Kante, and believes the midfielder is one of the key men behind the club's title tilt.

The 24-year-old put in yet another impressive performance against Arsenal in the 2-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Kante was an off-season arrival from French Ligue 1 side Caen, and Morgan believes the midfielder has been a key member of Leicester's title bid this season.

"He's definitely one of our key players," Morgan said after the game on Sunday, which left the Foxes just two points clear at the top of the Premier League standings.

"He makes so many tackles and interceptions, he's all over the pitch that sometimes I think there's two of him on the pitch.

"He's definitely one of the best signings for Leicester.

"He's a quiet individual. He keeps himself to himself. He's still not too confident with his English."
