As we are two positions in it's time for the Center-backs. When it comes to talent in the Premier League, we have a plethora of talent in that position. To be a successful club in the Premier League you need top Center-backs because it is true what they say, defense wins you championships.
Side Note: I will not count Vincent Kompany due to his injuries
5. Jan Vertonghen - Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
Super Jan has started the year extremely well after a season that had ups and downs for the Belgian as he got injured and seemed like his starting job was in doubt as Kevin Wimmer was on fire while Jan was injured. If Jan keeps playing like he has been this season, I can see him going higher on this list as he was fucking superb against Manchester City. With his amazing chemistry with his friend and practically life-long teammate Toby Alderweireld, it seems like Tottenham will once again have the best back four in the league.
4. Shkodran Mustafi - Arsenal F.C.
Mustafi was one of the signings of the summer, as the ex-Valencia man came to Arsenal for £35million, he has started the year very well for the North London Club (Let's be honest South London). The only reason he isn't higher is that it is too soon. Every Premier League fan knows looking at other league stats doesn't mean they can keep up the same form in a new and more competitive league. Mustafi has started extremely well but maybe in a couple of months if he still keeps this up he will be higher on this list.
3. Virgil van Dijk - Southampton F.C.
If you guys have followed the site for a couple of months, you know how much I rate Virgil van Dijk. The fact Manchester United, Liverpool or Arsenal (pre-Mustafi) didn't go for him is insane. He is not only a BEAST in the air as he wins 3.9 ariels duels a match and won 4.8 duels last year which was the most by ANY center-back in the entire league. For anyone who hasn't seen him a lot, I recommend watching Southampton and see how commanding he is and how many times he bails out Southampton. He will be at a top club soon.
2. Laurent Koscielny - Arsenal F.C.
Laurent Koscielny is a great center-back and is consistently at the top of the stat sheet for defenders. Arsenal fans usually have a way of overrating their players but not with him. Kos being number two might seem like I am knocking him, but I am not, this is more of another player just being that good than him being poor. If Mustafi can follow in Laurent's footsteps at Arsenal they can make a run for the title this season.
1. Toby Alderweireld - Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
45 Premier League matches (4050 minutes) and ZERO defensive errors for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. He was the main reason why Tottenham conceded the least amount of goals in the Premier League last season, he was also tied for 2nd with four goals by a defender and those were against top teams like Arsenal, Manchester City, West Ham (shit) and Manchester United. Tottenham conceded 53 FUCKING GOALS the year before we got Toby than with him we only conceded 35. He's not just the best center-back in the league but he is the most valuable player to this Tottenham side. He is a fucking tank, and if I ever meet him, I would kiss him. Stay Beautiful Toby.
P.S. We bought him for £11.5 million!!!!!
