4. Sol Campbell

Sol Campbell was a striker’s worst nightmare: an immensely powerful defender who could intimidate opponents by his sheer presence alone.

Campbell was also deceptively fast for his size, while his reading of the game was often perfect.

The retired England international played a key role in Arsenal’s legendary ‘Invincibles’ team of 2003/04.
