Eden Hazard: Chelsea basically signed my ‘twins’ when they bought this player

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard heaped praise on team-mate N’Golo Kante after the side’s 2-1 victory over West Ham on Monday evening.

 

The Belgian forward scored the Blues’ opening goal at the London Stadium and came away with the man of the match award but he chose to highlight Kante’s outstanding performance.

While Kante joined Chelsea for a fee of £30million last summer, Hazard believes Antonio Conte basically got two players for the price of one when he landed the French midfielder.

‘Sometimes I think I’m playing with twins,’ Hazard told Chelsea TV after his goalscoring display in the London derby.

Kante is the favourite to be named the PFA Player of the Year at the end of the season and it’s no surprise based on his showings in Chelsea colours this term.

If Conte’s men go on to win the Premier League, the midfielder would become the first player in history to win back-to-back titles with separate clubs.

The 25-year-old, of course, lifted the trophy with Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester in the 2015/16 campaign
