25-year-old Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has been impressive for Chelsea this season since his transfer from champions Leicester City during the summer.
Former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins believes Kante can be a better player than Chelsea great Claude Makelele.
Wilkins told Sky Sports: “N’Golo Kante has brought out the best in Nemanja Matic. We’re seeing performing to a really high level again.
“The one thing Kante has over Claude Makelele is his range of passing.
“There was a pass on Saturday against Arsenal where he broke and crashed a 60-yard pass to Eden Hazard – I wouldn’t have seen Makelele do that.
“I think he could be better than Makelele.”
