N'Golo Kante: FWA Player of the Year

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is “like a rat – he goes everywhere”, according to Blues team-mate Eden Hazard.

Belgium playmaker Hazard has been impressed with the energy and intelligence shown by Kante, a Premier League winner with Leicester last season before his move to Stamford Bridge.

Hazard told Chelsea TV: “He gives us confidence. We want to try to dribble and to pass the opponent because we know even if we try but don’t pass the opponent and if we lose the ball then he is there behind us, he can take the ball.

“He is a fantastic player. He is a like a rat, he goes everywhere and he has a top mentality and is a top guy. It is always good to play with the top players.”
