David Luiz, Chelsea
The Brazilian was always a favourite for Premier League fans, but a lot of that was down to his fuzzy hair and happy demeanour – for a while, sadly, his performances of the pitch didn’t engender similar sentiment.
The nadir for Luiz was when TV pundit and former Manchester United captain Gary Neville compared one performance against Liverpool as being like a Playstation player being controlled by a 10-year-old.
Neville has since admitted he went too far with the comment and there would be no danger of him saying it now; Luiz has improved vastly since his early days and has shown his incredible versatility by turning out in midfield as well as in the centre of defence.
