Centre-back: Rio Ferdinand | West Ham, Leeds United, Man United

It was very difficult to decide whether to put Rio Ferdinand or his Manchester United teammate Nemanja Vidic into the other centre-back spot.

However, it’s the former who gets the nod, due to the fact that he has spent all 14 years of the 21st Century in the Premier League - first with West Ham, then with Leeds, and finally with the Red Devils.

Rio is arguably the classiest central defender in Premier League history.
