Chelsea may boast the ultimate poacher in Diego Costa, but they are also the Premier League’s most lethal side from distance.

The Blues have been a dominant attacking force this season, be that by playing their way through opponents or crushing them on the counter.

Antonio Conte’s side are a team of many talents, and one capable of hurting foes in any number of ways.

Against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals, Chelsea were back to doing damage outside of the box.

N’Golo Kante broke the deadlock in that contest with a fine 20-yard strike, with the Frenchman’s effort extending a 2016-17 record for the Stamford Bridge side.

It is unlikely that Kante will offer too many more spectacular strikes to that tally this season, but he clearly likes facing the Red Devils.

Kante also netted in a memorable 4-0 victory for Chelsea over United on home soil back in October, with that performance wrecking Jose Mourinho’s first trip back to Stamford Bridge since vacating the Blues hot-seat for a second time.
