'Flourishing' N'Golo Kante doesn't feel like Premier League's best player

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante doesn't feel like the best player in the Premier League, despite calls for the former Leicester City man to be named the league's top player for this season.

Kante has been a key man for Antonio Conte's league-leading side since joining the Blues from Leicester for around £30 million last summer, and scored the goal that eliminated Manchester United in the FA Cup quarterfinals last week.

The France international's Leicester teammate, Riyad Mahrez, won the PFA Player of the Year award last season, and Kante believes there are players on his current team who deserve the honour more than he.

"I'm flourishing," Kante told Telefoot a day after Chelesa's 2-1 defeat of Stoke City. "But I don't feel like the best player in the Premier League.

"There are a lot of good players. A lot of guys would deserve it on my team."

N'Golo Kante has been a key piece for Chelsea's Premier League-leading side this year.

Chelsea enjoy a comfortable 10-point lead atop the Premier League, and have been in near-unbeatable form since switching to a 3-4-3 formation in September.

And Kante said of his team's title ambitions: "We have to take the games one at a time," he added. "That's what everyone is thinking. We're in a good position but we can't let it go."
