Tuchel, 48, almost appeared perplexed by what had occurred, holding his arms up almost as if apologizing.
Reece James had passed the ball to Kante just inside Leicester’s half.
As their defense continued to back off, he weaved his way through the Foxes’ non-existent midfield.
And as he neared the edge of the penalty area, the Frenchman slid a left-footed shot past Kasper Schmeichel and into the corner to put his team ahead 2-0.
As the lovable star was mobbed by his team-mates, Kante had no qualms about celebrating against his former side.
“Tuchel is too joke,” said one fan of Tuchel’s reaction.

“Tuchel’s reaction after Kante scored is priceless,” a second person added.
“The man is speechless.”
“Tuchel is baffled as to how Kante managed that shot,” said a third.
Chelsea had already taken the lead at the King Power Stadium thanks to Antonio Rudiger’s 14th-minute goal.
As he was given free reign over Leicester’s penalty area, the German defender headed home Ben Chilwell’s corner.
In the first half, Brendan Rodgers’ side struggled to contain the Blues, with the visitors dominating for long periods of time.
