- Chelsea midfieler N'Golo Kante has been named London Footballer of the Year
- He beat off competition from Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and Dele Alli
- Blues manager Antonio Conte was recognised as the manager of the year
Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has been named the London Payer of the Year beating off competition from the likes of Alexis Sanchez and team-mate Diego Costa to claim the capital's best player gong.
The summer signing from champions Leicester City was in contention for the award with the likes of Dele Alli, Alexis Sanchez, Danny Rose and Blues team-mate Diego Costa.
Kante was one of the best performers in Leicester's title triumph in 2015-16 and has been a major cog in the Chelsea engine room since moving to Stamford Bridge.
The midfielder has made 30 appearances in all competitions and scoring one goal for Antonio Conte's side who top the table.
Conte himself received the award for the best manager in London ahead of Premier League rival Mauricio Pochettino Tottenham.
Spurs captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was named the best in his position in London while Chelsea great Frank Lampard was given an award for his contributions to football in London.
Chelsea have 20 league wins from 26 matches thus far this season, with the west Londoners 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham.
