Jamie Carragher names Chelsea star as one of Premier League's best


The Premier League may only be seven game-weeks old but the table is really starting to take shape. The latter Carragher believes will be a future Player of the Year victor following his impressive start to the season.

Carragher delivered his verdicts to the Daily Telegraph.

In goal, Carragher opted for David de Gea, the Manchester United and Spain 'keeper widely considered to be one of the best in the world and arguably the best in the Premier League.

Arsenal and Liverpool's clash at the Emirates may also be swapped. "A great defensive record under Mauricio Pochettino".

"Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back".

"Alongside him his mate wasn't far behind him, Vertonghen".

Right-back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)'His Chelsea team play a slightly different system with three at the back, but Azpilicueta has to go in there as he is one of the best defenders in the Premier League'.

Centre midfield: N'Golo Kante (Chelsea)'The defensive player in the middle. "He has gone from Leicester City to Chelsea and been the most impressive player in both sides".

Kane, 24, is enjoying a prolific start to the 2017/18 season having registered 15 goals across his last 14 matches for club and country.

Even if Tottenham do not win the championship, it will be a successful season for them if they end up in the top four and qualify for the Champions League group stage for the third year in a row.

Speaking at the club's training ground at London Colney he said: "Yes I know that we have to adapt to the schedule dictated by the televisions, but overall I would say if that happens personally I think no game should be played after 2 o'clock [at the] latest on Christmas Eve on the 24th because Christmas Day in England is 25".
