But he was 33 at this point, and as he struggled to adapt to the rough and tumble of the Premier League, Liverpool lost on half of his 12 appearances. Integral to Liverpool’s ruthless start to the campaign has been Alexander-Arnold, the right-back-cum-playmaker who offers Jurgen Klopp one of the most threatening outlets in English football. Liverpool currently lead the way, sitting nine points above defending champions Manchester City, while Leicester City and Chelsea are also above the champions. Such has been Mings’ early form that the 6 ft 5 in defender received his first England cap earlier this month. We’ve compiled a list consisting of the best defenders in the Premier League for 2019/20 and the statistics to back it up. Key stat: Caglar Soyuncu has made the second-most successful passes of any defender outside the ‘Big Six’ in the Premier League this season and the third-most overall (596). Having missed out on signing Virgil van Dijk in the summer, Jurgen Klopp could partner Ragnar Klavan with youngster Joe Gomez in the centre of defence at the King Power Stadium, and while that's hardly ideal, Reds fans need to remember that things have been worse for them before. Pereira has picked up from where he left off last season and has started this campaign like a house on fire. Again, as with Dicks, left-back Konchesky has been a good player for other clubs - including Billericay Town right now - but it was a case of wrong man under the wrong manager at the wrong club when he joined Liverpool in 2009. Always inventing new ways to get injured, he broke two ribs and punctured a lung on his debut in the League Cup against Crewe. It is no wonder then that defensive solidity has been closely followed by early success for these three clubs. In many ways this is a harsh inclusion for the Argentinean, who had a fine career at Valencia before arriving at Anfield on a six-month deal in January 2005. In a poor Reds period under Graeme Souness, Dicks struggled on the left side of defence, and after just one season at the club he was shipped out when Roy Evans replaced the Scot in the managerial hotseat in 1994.

The 50 worst players in Premier League history By Alex Reid 27 March 2019 Put your hands over your eyes - just as many fans did as they watched this hapless bunch. The 21-year-old has made a fluid transition to top-flight football and has transmitted his Derby County form over to west London, forming a key part of Chelsea’s defence and earning an England call-up in the process. List of players based on birth year. The Foxes have been in scintillating form under Brendan Rodgers this term and will now have aspirations of not only finishing the campaign as the “best of the rest” but possibly even smashing through the top four ceiling. It hasn’t been easy for Newcastle this season, but one player who has shone in otherwise difficult circumstances is Schar. Rafael Benitez's first ever Liverpool signing actually started out pretty well in the 2004/05 season, shining in his first few games before fading badly and then disappearing altogether. With competent ball-playing skills, intelligence and positional awareness, Soyuncu possesses all the key attributes to thrive in a defensive system obsessed with playing out from the back. The Ballon d’Or hopeful has remained a consistent cog in Klopp’s well-oiled backline, playing every single second in Liverpool’s unbeaten start, as well as forming a formidable blockade when the Reds were without Alisson.
