Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell names five greatest full-backs of all time
Ben Chilwell, a defender for Chelsea, has listed the top five full-backs in the history of the Premier League.
In a recent video published on the official Premier League website, Chilwell named his five best full-backs to have graced the English top-flight league era.
The England international named former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole, Manchester United right-back Gary Neville, and left-back Patrice Evra on the list.
He also added current Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson and right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold to the list.
“My first Premier League full-back is Ashley Cole. I always had good things to say about Ashley Cole,” Chilwell said.
“My second full-back is Gary Neville. Won endless Premier Leagues and a lot of trophies with Manchester United.
“My No. 3 for full-backs in the Premier League would be Patrice Evra because I watched a lot of United games growing up.
“My fourth full-back, who I want to go for in the Premier League, is Andy Robertson. Because over the last few years, as a left-back, he’s someone I have respected, and I have seen what I have seen at Liverpool.
“And my fifth choice I am going to go for is Trent Alexander-Arnold. The thing that I go for is his crossing ability, range of passing, free-kicks, and set-pieces.”
Chilwell has been with Chelsea since 2020, making 89 appearances across competitions for the Blues, contributing nine goals and 13 assists.
The 26-year-old has an assist in four Premier League games for Chelsea this season.
