Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante should be named PFA Player of the Year after his stunning impact at the Premier League leaders, according to Gary Neville.

Frenchman Kante was shortlisted for the award last year as he helped Leicester City defy odds of 5000/1 to win the title.

His Leicester team-mate Riyad Mahrez ultimately took home the award but Kante could get his hands on the trophy this year.

The 25-year-old has been hugely influential in helping Antonio Conte’s Chelsea storm 10 points clear at the top of the table.

And this, according to Manchester United legend Neville, should see him crowned the PFA Player of the Year.

When asked to name his pick, Neville said on Monday Night Football: ‘I actually said before that he [Kante] should win it.

‘His impact on the two teams has been absolutely incredible.

‘What Chelsea have gained this season… He’s infectious, he’s all over the pitch. For me, Kante should win it.’
