Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was named the PFA Player of the Year last season for his huge role in Chelsea’s Premier League triumph.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists Kante is confirming he’s the best player in the league with his impressive performances for Chelsea.
“It was an amazing performance. He played a really fantastic game. He scored but he also made a lot of good runs,” Conte said.
“N’Golo is a fantastic player and is improving. I think he is now very good with the ball. Before people used to say without the ball he has great stamina, he is a great worker.
“But now with the ball, he is improving a lot – I’m happy with this. We are working a lot with him. Now I think he is a top player.
“How far up in the world is he? I don’t know but to be the best player of the Premier League last season is a great thing and this season he is confirming this.”
