The best central defenders in the English top tier.
10. John Terry (Chelsea)
A despicable human but still a pretty decent footballer. There was a time when Terry would have topped this list but he’s not quite the player he once was, as evidence by the humbling he received at the hands of Andy Carroll at the end of last season. But the 31-year-old had a solid Euro 2012 with England and will play a big part in helping Chelsea push for the title this term.
