I've often wondered if maybe Gana is future captain material.  He is the boss on the pitch.

My player of the season so far, his performances go unnoticed far too often - if he was a better passer he could have his pick of the top clubs he's that good

Yeah me and my mate said the same. He’s eclipse Kante if he could pass better. Needs to take a shot more often too.

He really is, in many ways, the budget/poor(ish) man's version of Kante.

Respectfully disagree. You've seen him shoot, right?

He's in excellent form because his current role asks to him to do all of the things he does well (tackle, intercept, pressure the ball, play simple passes) and none of the things he does poorly (attacking, basically). I wouldn't mess with it one bit.

Intersting piece in the Daily Post....

Idrissa Gueye is constantly compared with N’Golo Kante due to how the pair of them hunt down opponents on the pitch.

However, the Everton midfielder is way ahead of his Chelsea counterpart when it comes to being the Premier League player with the most impact this season.

The pair met at Stamford Bridge on Sunday with Marco Silva’s side more than matching Maurizio Sarri’s men in a goalless draw,and Gueye showed he's hardly a second rate Kante imitation but rather a top-class performer outright.

With their similar statures - small but strong - and both having been with clubs in northern France before coming to the Premier League (Gueye with Lille and Kante at Caen), the parallels are uncanny.

Former Everton director of football Steve Walsh who spotted Kante for his previous club Leicester City, is also credited as being the talent-spotter who identified Gueye as being ideal for Goodison Park despite the Senegalese international having suffered relegation with Aston Villa nearly three years ago.

Kante of course clinched back-to-back titles with Leicester City and Chelsea respectively in 2016 and 2017 - being named PFA Players’ Player of the Year in the latter campaign - but Gueye’s form this season shows just what an effective performer he has become in the Blues engine room.

Going into the final international break of the calendar year, Gueye leads the Premier League in tackles so far this term (57) and his place at the summit is by some distance report the Liverpool Echo.

His closest challenger at this stage is Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka (some 12 tackles behind on 45) with the rest of the top five being Gueye’s compatriot Mohamed Diame of Newcastle United (42) followed by Portuguese pair Joao Moutinho of Wolves(40) and Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira (39).

For context, Kante who has played in all 12 of Chelsea’s Premier League games - one more than Gueye - has made just 22 tackles, a figure that doesn’t even put him top of Chelsea’s individual list which is currently headed by captain Cesar Azpilicueta (25).

From an Everton point of view, Gueye’s bite provides a vital ingredient when it comes to striking the right balance in the centre of the park.

His breaking up of opposition play is so diligent that it has enabled Silva in recent weeks to introduce a more creative partner alongside him.

The Blues boss has dispensed with deploying another defensive-minded option in the shape of Morgan Schneiderlin while the similarly energetic attributes to Gueye provided by Tom Davies have also made way to allow Andre Gomes to add some silk to the steel in midfield.

Gueye’s efforts are such that they are often described as being akin to the work of two men and statistically speaking at least it appears to be a well-founded observation.

Pretty much what we 've been saying all along and who cares if he isn't Pirlo personified....absolute tank.

^Kante has been pushed in a different role and Chelsea have the majority of the ball in pretty much every match so he’s going to make less tackles.

Love him me. Remember the fume when we bought him?

I don't tbh but I am sure there was there usually is.

He's superb at what he does and the Kante comparison while fine probably isn't very viable
