5. Branislav Ivanovic

It has been a long time since GMS have watched Chelsea and have been able to claim that the Serbian defender has had a bad game - he is just so consistent.

Ivanovic has been primarily used as a right-back by Jose Mourinho since his return to Stamford Bridge but he has also filled in at centre-back at times, obviously to great effect. You will find fewer defenders that will work as hard as him and he adds to that a goal threat in the opposition area, especially at set-pieces.

This season has been no different and Mourinho relies on Ivanovic to shore yup the right hand side of his defence, allowing the the attacking players such as Hazard, Willian and Schurrle more freedom to roam.
