North London: Jan Vertonghen

North West: Chris Smalling

There's plenty of options in this department for all of our teams so we're going to split them up for each of the centre-back positions.

First up it's Tottenham v Manchester United, and with the old guard going, the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have stepped up. The former Fulham man looks a little more solid at the back, although that may be because Jones is moved around a fair bit.

Vertonghen meanwhile has had a little dip in form recently but his class is undeniable.


The Belgian wins the first centre-back battle. He has the class to bring the ball out and is versatile enough to play left-back.
