Manchester United stars also make an appearance in the top 10.
Chelsea’s clean-sheet against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday was the Blues’ 13th of the season and they have only conceded 22 goals.
Whilst attacking players will always steal the plaudits a lot of credit needs to go to defenders and here are the 10 best in the league this term, with statistics courtesy of WhoScored.
10. Phil Jones, Manchester United – 7.32
It’s been a difficult campaign for United and manager David Moyes in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, but some players have shown good form.
In Jones they have an extremely promising prospect and potential captaincy material for both club and country, as well as the ability to play in defence and midfield.
