DR) Branislav Ivanovic – Chelsea
Ivanovic is as strong defensively as he is going forward, while Liverpool’s Johnson is occasionally caught out at the back because of his attacking instincts. Plus, Johnson missed parts of this season with injury.
DC) Martin Skrtel – Liverpool
It’s difficult to leave any Chelsea defenders out of this side, but LIverpool’s Slovakian just gets the nod because of his goalscoring record this term. With seven, he’s notched more league goals than any defender in Europe, and has also made more clearances than anyone in Europe as well!
