Victor Moses Makes BBC Team Of The Week… Kante Crowned PFA Player Of The Year 2017

Super Eagles forward Victor Moses ‎has once again made the team of the week in England following his performance for Chelsea in their 4-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Moses was on from start to finish, and put in a man of the match performance which includes winning the vital penalty that helped Chelsea go into the half time break leading 2-1.

His performances as a wingback under Antonio Conte has made him a regular in the team, after years of been out on loan from the club during the coaching spells of various coaches.

The Nigerian is making the team of the year put together by the BBC for the fourth time this season, a sign of how influential and useful he has become for the title favourite.

Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante has been voted the Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year.

The tireless midfielder, 26, has been central to Chelsea’s surge to the Premier League summit. The Frenchman, bought from Leicester for £32million in July, is on course to win back-to-back titles.

He secured the most votes from his peers, seeing off competition from team-mate Eden Hazard plus Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Manchester United, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal.

Kante was presented with the award at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on Sunday evening.

He said: ‘To be chosen by the players to be player of the year means a lot to me.

‘It means the world to be chosen and it’s been two beautiful seasons, one with Leicester, and we are in good form with Chelsea. To be player of the year, it’s a great honour.’

On his move from Leicester to Stamford Bridge, Kante continued: ‘It’s a different type of playing, but with the manager, with the players, everything is easy, because we work a lot to be good in the games. It’s working very well.’
