Jamie Carragher believes that N’Golo Kante is the Premier League’s best midfielder following his sparkling start to life at Chelsea.

The France international joined the Blues last summer after helping Leicester City to win the Premier League title under Claudio Ranieri.

Kante has earned plenty of praise for his performances this season as he helped Chelsea win the Premier League title in Antonio Conte’s first campaign in charge.

The midfielder’s displays have not gone unnoticed, with the 26-year-old having been voted as the PFA player of the year last month.

Carragher picked his team of the season in the Premier League during Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football and the Liverpool legend was full of praise for the Frenchman.

Carragher simply said: “I’d have Kante holding. He’s probably been the Premier League’s best midfielder.”
