N’Golo Kante has been a huge force in the Chelsea midfield since his summer transfer from Leicester City.

He has been receiving praises from many quarters, and has been tipped by many to win the PFA Player of the Year.

His country teammate Paul Pogba has heaped praises on the 25-year-old, saying that his fellow Frenchman can run for 11 players.

“Everybody knows that N’Golo Kante can run for 11 players – that’s his best quality,” Pogba told ManUnited.com.

“He gets the ball and plays simple. When the manager tells him something, he will do it and he will do it perfectly.

“He’s one of the biggest players for Chelsea, he makes the difference because, to be honest, when you see when they lose the ball he will lose the ball three times and win the ball back four times! He’s everywhere! He’s a big player.”

So far, Kante has won the midfield battle between the French duos and will be hoping to be on the winning side as the teams lock horns at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
