Chelsea have two of the three best performing central midfielders in Europe’s top 5 league this season, according to the CIES Football Observatory.
The Blues have both N’Golo Kante and Jorginho on the list, although neither is able to nick top spot off PSG’s Adrien Rabiot.
There’s still a lot of the season to go, and we’d expect both to challenge the Frenchman heavily from now on.
