N’Golo Kante looks set to sweep the player of the year awards in the Premier League this season, but does the French midfielder really deserve such recognition? He has been undoubtedly excellent for the runaway champions, but is his rise to the top of the list indicative of something else?
Should Eden Hazard have won the award ahead of Kante? What about Delle Ali? Or Romelu Lukaku? Is the issue that no one player has truly lit up the Premier League this season? Is Kante receiving the award for his achievements last season as much as this?
Graham Ruthven is joined by Scott McClymont and Thom Watt to talk it through. What is even the point of player of the year awards, anyway?
