There was so much debate on who would emerge as the winner of the PFA Player of the Year award, with N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard the favourites for the award.
Kante eventually won the award, and pundits Matthew Upson and Danny Murphy revealed what they thought about Kante being crowned the winner.
“He, for me, is the most valuable player in the Premier League with his contribution,” Upson said.
“He might not be the most creative or sudden impact wise, but over the course of the season for me he has been the most valuable player in the Premier League. He’s been outstanding.”
While Murphy said: “He’s [Kante] the one you can’t replace. If Hazard wasn’t there you could put Willian in.
“But for me Hazard in many of the big games against the other big boys has turned the game for Chelsea with that creativity, that magic.”
