LB: Leighton Baines v Jordi Alba

The first of our Premier League entrants who does not represent a perennial title contender, Baines has been simply terrific for Everton since moving to Goodison Park from Wigan in 2007.

Solid in a defensive capacity and always dangerous moving forward, the set-piece specialist has even managed to cement his status as England's first-choice left-back.

Facing him here is Spain and Barcelona's first-choice Alba, who pips Brazilian counterpart Marcelo.

Who wins?

As huge long-term admirers of the affable Baines, it pains us to do it but we are going to give the edge to the pacy and dynamic Alba.
