2. Branislav Ivanovic
The 29-year-old Serbian has a brilliant goalscoring record in the Premier League (for a defender), notching up five, three and four goals in his past three years at Chelsea.
And, as already mentioned, Ivanovic has already got himself on the scoresheet this season. His no-nonsense, hard hitting style must be extremely intimidating for any defender trying to mark him on set pieces.
This year, he may even have his highest Premier League scoring season to date.
