Paul Pogba has singled out N’Golo Kante as one of Chelsea’s key players ahead of Sunday’s crunch clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Kante and his Chelsea team-mates are preparing to head to Old Trafford as they look to take a step closer towards winning the Premier League title this season.

Chelsea have already twice beaten Manchester United at Stamford Bridge this season and are looking to make it three victories against Jose Mourinho’s men this weekend.

Kante has been one of Chelsea’s key players this season since his arrival at the club from Leicester City last summer.

The French midfielder has been rewarded for his fine displays with a nomination for the PFA player of the year award.

And his international team-mate Pogba has warned Manchester United about the threat posed by Kante on Sunday afternoon at Old Trafford.

“Everybody knows that N’Golo Kante can run for 11 players – that’s his best quality,” Pogba told Manchester United’s website.

“He gets the ball and plays simple. When the manager tells him something, he will do it and he will do it perfectly.

“He’s one of the biggest players for Chelsea, he makes the difference because, to be honest, when you see when they lose the ball he will lose the ball three times and win the ball back four times! He’s everywhere! He’s a big player.”
