Laurent Koscielny has revealed that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante is the best player in the Premier League.
Kante joined Chelsea in the summer of 2016 after winning the miraculous League title with Leicester City last season. The midfield dynamo is on course to lifting his second Premier League title on the trot with Chelsea this season. Kante has been immense for Conte’s 3-4-3 formation and has won plaudits from all across the globe.
N’Golo Kante has many admirers in world football and the skipper of cross town rivals Arsenal is one of them. Kosc was talking to the French media ahead of a crucial qualifier against Luxemburg:
“He had the aptitude to adapt in his new club, he had a difficult first month but since the loss to Arsenal, he has progressed enormously.”
Despite playing alongside Ozil and Sanchez at Arsenal, Koscielny rates Kante higher than any other player in the League.
“For me he is the best player of the championship.”
“He knows what he can and cannot do. He harasses his opponents and gives the ball to his offensive players.”
Arsenal are in a crisis at the moment following a dismal exit from the Champions League and the poor run of form in the League. Koscielny’s statement might not go down too well with the Arsenal supporters who are already miffed with the situation at Emirates.
