Kante Voted EPL Player Of The Year

Chelsea and France midfielder, N'Golo Kante,  has been named the EA Sports Premier League Player of The Year.

The award was announced on the EPL's official Twitter handle on Sunday.

Kante beat off competition from Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard, Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur and Everton's Romelu Lukaku to claim the award.

It is the third major award Kante has collected after an outstanding season for Chelsea who recently won the 2016/17 EPL title.

The 26-year-old Frenchman had already been named Player of the Year by the Football Writers' Association and the Professional Footballers' Association.

He has become just the second player to win the Premier League with different clubs in back-to-back seasons, having been an integral part of Leicester's title-winning campaign last term.

The Premier League award was decided by the views of an expert panel and the Premier League captains, combined with online votes from supporters.
