LB: Ashley Cole | Chelsea

Perhaps the most difficult position on the list, and one that won't sit well with everyone, Ashley Cole gets the nod for now because of his experience and continued success.

We'd love to tell you there was a left-sided full-back who was easily distinguishable as the best in the world, but there simply isn't.

David Alaba has only had one good season at the top, Marcelo and Jordi Alba aren't good enough when defending and names such as Leighton Baines still need to prove that they're going to be in the thick of it in the long-run.

Cole takes the shirt by virtue of being a consistently high-performer in a field of minimal competition.
