Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have been outstanding for Chelsea this season, but Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Chelsea’s N’Golo deserves to be the player of the season.
The Frenchman has been a pillar in Chelsea’s midfield this season, and Merson believes he should be the player of the year.
When asked for his player of the year pick, Merson told Sky Sports: “I’m going to go for Kante.
“I know I could pick Hazard, I could pick Costa but for him [Kante] to win the league with someone [Leicester] then join another team [Chelsea].
“He has been the difference. Leicester have missed him and he’s gone to Chelsea and he’s been phenomenal.
“He covers every blade of grass. He’s getting better and better. I have to say him.”
