Nathaniel Chalobah says N'Golo Kante is among the top three FIFA 17 players at Chelsea and is often the man who wins when the players compete against each other on away trips.

Chalobah has made his first-team breakthrough this season after several loan spells away from Stamford Bridge and is a popular member of the dressing room, widely considered as a positive influence behind the scenes.

Now, the 22-year-old, who was an unused substitute in Chelsea's recent 4-2 FA Cup semi-final victory over London rivals Tottenham, has revealed which of his Blues team-mates enjoy the most success on FIFA 17.

"I’d say it is probably between [Kurt] Zouma, [Cesar] Azpilicueta and [N’Golo] Kante. One of them three. They are top players," Chalobah told Goal. "Nathan Ake will be unhappy I didn’t put him in there but I keep destroying him so he can’t be the best. 

"I’m pretty good but I don’t get involved always, especially not with England Under-21s. They take it seriously on those trips, but Tammy Abraham fancies himself and he is pretty decent to be fair. 

"It is good, football brings people together, as it is here. People are from everywhere playing together. Everyone plays FIFA. All kinds of people!"


Chalobah recently took part in a FIFA 17 tournament against the likes of Jason Puncheon, Nathan Redmond and Ryan Bertrand - with the latter coming out on top as footballers faced off against pop-stars and grime artists.

The Chelsea youngster was having a rare night off away from the football pitch and gave some recommendations of music and television series he is currently enjoying at the moment. 

"I listen to a little bit of grime, a little bit of everything to be fair," He added. "Abra Cadabra is here, I am playing a bit of him at the minute and a bit of Kojo Funds. Those are my recommendations in terms of music, for Netflix, I recommend Designated Survivor. I just started it and the first episode was decent!"
