Ian Wright explains why Chelsea star will definitely win PFA award
Ian Wright is fully expecting to see N'Golo Kante win the PFA player of the year award this season
Ian Wright is fully expecting to see N’Golo Kante win the PFA player of the year award this season following his sparkling displays for Chelsea.
The French midfielder has been in superb form for the west London club since his arrival at Stamford Bridge from Leicester City last summer.
Kante earned plenty of new admirers last season as his brilliant performances helped Leicester City win the title.
And the midfielder has continued his fine displays this term under new boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea, helping the Blues to build a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Kante has been nominated for the PFA player of the year award along with Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard.
However, former Arsenal star Wright feels that Kante would be the worthy winner of the award.
Speaking on The Sun Goals podcast, Wright said: “Kante will probably win it. Eden Hazard will run him close. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been good.
“[But] what Kante did last season and has done this season again, it’s an amazing achievement.”
Chelsea are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
