Ex-Newcastle striker Alan Shearer believes that Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante was the man of the match at Stamford Bridge against Manchester United last night.
“The man of the match was undoubtedly Kante, – Shearer told BBC Sport after the game. – The way he retrieved the ball… He made such a big difference tonight.”
“I think you’re looking at the Football Writers’ player of the year and the PFA player of the year. He has stood out above everyone else”.
Then Shearer added: “We’re not used to him scoring too many goals but he was absolutely superb tonight. He was all over the park as usual.”
