Top five: Under-used Premier League stars (6)

Jermain Defoe - Tottenham

If you score a brace, you expect to start or at the very least, take up a place on the substitutes bench, right?

Well, not if you're Jermain Defoe. Having hit two past Tromso in the Europa League as Spurs ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, the England international was left out of the matchday squad against Cardiff the following fixture.

Not to be deterred, Defoe hit two again as Andre Villas-Boas' men beat Aston Villa 4-0 in the Capital One Cup in mid-week.

Will be return to the Spurs squad for the London derby against Chelsea this weekend…?
