- The 26-year-old showed why he was awarded the player of the year in the game against the Saints
- The French midfielder played full time in Chelsea's 4-2 win against Southampton at Stamford Bridge
- Kante was awarded the PFA player ahead of teammate Hazard, Ibrahimovic, Lukaku and Sanchez
N'Golo Kante displayed why he was awarded the player of the year in the game against the Saints on Tuesday night, April 25.
The Chelsea midfielder had earlier been awarded the PFA player of the year on Sunday, April 23, 2017.
The French midfielder played full 90 minutes for Chelsea in their 4-2 win against Southampton at Stamford Bridge two days after receiving his award.
In that game, the midfielder beat not less than three Southampton players en route the byline and then played a dangerous cross in the box which was extraordinary and was getting lots of buzz on social media.
Football fans went crazy after Kante turned into Lionel Messi which brought about twitter reactions as can be seen below.
Kante signed for Chelsea for £32 million last summer which seems like an absolute bargain now for the Blues as he has played a key role in their campaign this season.
He picked up the PFA award after being voted by his peers as the best player in England this season ahead of teammate Hazard, Ibrahimovic, Sanchez and Lukaku.
