Harry Maguire is one of the best players outside of the Premier League's top six.
After his impressive performances at the World Cup with England, he was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but eventually decided to stay loyal to Leicester City.
Although it's been a difficult season for the Foxes, who recently swapped Claude Puel for Brendan Rodgers, Maguire has barely put a foot wrong at the heart of their defence.
The former Hull City defender has a reputation for dominating in the air, making wise decisions on the ball and even popping up with a goal from time to time.
Dribbling and skills certainly wouldn't be high on that list, though.

Leicester 2-1 Brighton
Every professional footballer tends to have a few tricks up their sleeves, but some of the more no-nonsense defenders aren't exactly renowned for marauding runs and step-overs.
Usually, that would be the case with Maguire, just not against Brighton and Hove Albion.
With Rodgers watching on from the stands, Leicester were able to secure themselves a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Demarai Gray and Jamie Vardy.
Maguire taking on the world
However, Maguire actually came close to presenting a brilliant goalscoring opportunity of his own during the 75th minute, going completely off script with a run from the halfway line.
You would be mistaken for thinking that Maguire had had enough, was envisaging himself as a prime Cristiano Ronaldo and wanted to take on the world in 10 seconds.
He took on no less than five Brighton players, challenging Shane Duffy with some hilarious step-overs and eventually laying on the ball to Harvey Barnes.
Fair play to Maguire, though, because the vast majority of centre-backs simply wouldn't have made it that far. Take a look at the full video down below:
Can you imagine the scenes if Maguire smashed it past Matthew Ryan?
Thankfully for Barnes, who took a poor first touch and saw his shot blocked, Leicester had already secured the three points and entered their new era with a victory.
It also reiterates to Rodgers that Maguire will be a crucial individual in his plans going forward, although maybe not as literally as he showed against Brighton.
Rodgers already has an international-level defender at this disposal and one that he can start to build his third Premier League team around.
Upcoming games with Watford, Fulham, Burnley and Bournemouth represent a relatively kind run of fixtures for the new manager and he'll be hoping to continue the winning streak.
