Ian Wright is backing N’Golo Kante to win the PFA player of the year award following his sparkling form for Chelsea this season.

The French midfielder was named on the shortlist for the main prize along with his Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard.

Kante has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season and has continued his fine form for the west London club after joining from Leicester City last summer.

Hazard has also been in sensational form this season but Wright is backing Kante to take home the award.

And the Arsenal legend is also expecting to see Dele Alli scoop the young player of the year award this season.

Asked to predict the winners, Wright simply told The Sun Goals podcast: “I think it will be N’Golo Kante and Dele Alli.”

Kante will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Manchester United in Sunday’s crunch clash at Old Trafford.
