Beckham: Dele's a joy to watch

Spurs are yet to win a major trophy since Pochettino took over

N'Golo Kante was last night named the PFA Players' Player of the Year after a formidable debut season at Chelsea, while Dele Alli of Tottenham has retained the Young Player of the Year award.

"He is a special player", said Beckham, England's third most-capped player of all time.

Chelsea have a four-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur in the race, and Kante's performances in the middle of the park have contributed to the club's surge.

Indeed, Romeu has made 2.73 tackles per game in the Premier League this season compared to Kante's return of 2.33.

The 26-year-old France midfielder, who joined Chelsea from English champions Leicester City before the season started, is the fourth Frenchman to lift the award after Eric Cantona, David Ginola and twice victor Thierry Henry.


Weir is also nominated for the Women's Young Player of the Year, battling Millie Bright of Chelsea, Jess Carter of Birmingham and the Man City trio of Nikita Parris, Georgia Stanway and Keira Walsh. "To be chosen as player of the year is a great honour". "When you try and build a team, you need a mix of talent, with people who work so hard and try and improve, to find the right mix".

Leicester urged him to choose the latter and he played at Euro 2016 before moving to Chelsea three days after Conte was unveiled using one word more than any other: work. It's important to play our game and enjoy it.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte said that Kante needs to keep improving. I think he puts the winning mentality in the squad and everyone wants to give their very best for the team and make sure Chelsea wins the title.

Of course, the Blues have yet to wrap up their league campaign and will also compete for the FA Cup in the final against Arsenal on May 27. "I've had two attractive seasons. we didn't win the league yet and we (Chelsea) will fight like it's a final in every game". "Our target. We were very pleased to reach this target in our transfer market", He continued.
