Chelsea trio nominated for FIFPro World 11

New, comments

Surely they have a chance.

On the heels of a remarkable 2016-17 season, Chelsea have had three stars nominated for the FIFPro World 11: N’Golo Kanté, Eden Hazard and David Luiz.

All three have a decent chance of making the final team, as all three were tremendous in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign. Kanté seems the best bet after winning the PFA Player of the Year, but Hazard and David Luiz were also vital cogs in Antonio Conte’s well-oiled machine and could (should?) get in.

The FIFPro World 11 will be announced on October 23 at The Best FIFA Football Awards in Zurich, Switzerland.

Here are all 55 nominees:
