Gary Cahill has been impressed with N’golo Kante so far this season and believes he’ll get even better.
Kante is a favourite to win this season’s PFA fans’ Player of the year award, with his performances helping Chelsea to the top of the table.
Cahill believes the France international has been an integral part of Chelsea’s improvement from last season.
“We saw last season at Leicester how good he was,” Cahill told Chelsea’s match day programme, ahead of the Crystal Palace game. “To come in and deal with the pressures that come with moving to a club like Chelsea and adapt the way he has is a testament to him.
“For me and the rest of the defence it’s great to have him protecting us like he does. He’s come here and adapted straight away and improved even more.
“He’s going to keep working hard and keep improving, he’s still only young. He’s been absolutely fantastic for us this season, but it is important to say everyone has.”
