Left-back - Jordi Alba

Another for whom 2012 was better than 2013, but Alba keeps his spot by virtue of few other challengers. 

Perhaps a case could be made for Marcelo of Real Madrid, but Ashley Cole is getting on a bit and is currently out of the Chelsea team, Patrice Evra's best days are behind him and this is one year too early for David Alaba.

The Austrian will surely challenge Alba for this place next year.
