John Terry v Raphael Varane
This really is a pick from opposite ends of the spectrum. On one hand we have John Terry, the veteran experienced leader, going up against a defender tipped by some to be the best in his position on the continent.
Sergio Ramos was considered for the position but his disciplinary problems have counted against him.
This is a tough one. We're not necessarily looking at form here but overall class and while Varane clearly has it in abundance, he's not had the time to show how consistent he can be as yet. That means Terry, who is enjoying a superb season, gets the nod.
