The Top Ten

Chelsea FC legend JT, the EPL's highest ever scoring defender has donned the blue of London his entire career, does he take pole position? - Eezeh

The take no prisoners Serbian won all there is to win at Old Trafford, with only one known weakness; Fernando Torres. - Eezeh

9 Vincent Kompany

The only player on the list still actively playing in the Premier League, regularly in the treatment room, but a true leader, and sorely missed when unavailable. - Eezeh

10 Jaap Stam
