The Liverpool legend has described Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante as the best Premier League player in 2016

Jamie Carragher has described Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante as the best player in the Premier League in 2016.

The France international has underlined his reputation as one of the Premier League’s standout midfielders after helping to transform Chelsea into title favourites following his summer move.

Kante moved to Chelsea in a £34m deal from defending champions Leicester City in the summer transfer window after the holding midfielder helped the Foxes to win the Premier League crown against the odds.

The Frenchman has established an impressive midfield partnership with Nemanja Matic in recent months to help Chelsea get a stranglehold on the title race amid competition from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

Speaking to Frank Lampard in Daily Mail ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night, the ex-defender said of Kante:

“I said recently Kante was the player of 2016, he does an amazing job.”

Chelsea are eight points clear of their closest rivals Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table with 16 games to play in the title race.
