Football is a very demanding sport and very few players are able to complete a full season with the odd rest these days.
However, nine men did start all 38 Premier League games in the 2014-15 season.
Three of those men belong to champions Chelsea – captain John Terry, fellow defender Branislav Ivanovic and Player of the Year Eden Hazard, who started against Sunderland on Sunday, despite having been highlighted as a doubt due to emergency dental surgery.
West Ham United duo Aaron Cresswell and Adrian also completed a full campaign. Goalkeeper Adrian kept nine clean sheets, while Cresswell shone at left-back, attracting transfer talk linking him with interest from Chelsea and Manchester City.
Three Burnley players made 38 starts – goalkeeper Tom Heaton, centre-half Jason Shackell and right-back Kieran Trippier.
Hull City’s Ahmed Elmohamady and Stoke City’s Steven N’Zonzi were the other players to start all 38 matches.
Tottenham Hotspur, Christian Eriksen, Southampton’s Graziano Pelle and West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino all played 38 league games, but some of their appearances came off the bench.
