Chelsea’s defender, Ben Chilwell, has identified his selection for the top five Premier League full-backs in history.
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 in 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. Always had good things to say about Ashley Cole,” Chilwell said.
“My second full back is Gary Neville. Won endless Premier Leagues, won a lot of trophies with Man 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, 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, 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.
