That is according to player-turned-pundit Jamie Redknapp.
Chelsea's star midfielder put in yet another incredible display on Monday night in the 2-1 victory at West Ham.
The London Stadium triumph edged the Blues closer to the title, as they now sit 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham.
Summer signing Kante has been pivotal in their success, with his distance covered, tackles and interceptions crucial to the Chelsea team.
N'Golo Kante has been a revelation at Chelsea since his move from Leicester last summer
I've never seen a player with so much energy, chasing lost causes
And ex-Liverpoool midfielder Redknapp is relieved he isn't among those tasked with stopping the France international in the Premier League.
Redknapp wrote in his Daily Mail column: "Young players these days will say 'I am a defensive midfielder', but why do they do that? Kante is a midfielder. Not attacking, not defensive.
"I've never seen a player with so much energy, chasing lost causes and turning over possession.
"My advice would be: watch him, do not pigeonhole yourself as a defensive midfielder. Work on your all-round game.

N'Golo Kante has been almost an ever-present in the Chelsea team under Antonio Conte
"When parents tell their children, 'Watch Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi', that is unrealistic. What they should be doing is pointing them toward Kante's showreel.
"He is a modern-day phenomenon. Watching him makes me happy to be retired — imagine him closing you down for 90 minutes!"
Chelsea's 25-year-old is favourite to be crowned the PFA Player of the Year.
And with a second successive title in sight for the ex-Leicester star, Kante is arguably the signing of the season from Antonio Conte.
