Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell names five greatest full-backs of all time Published

Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell has named his five greatest Premier League full-backs of all time.

In a recent video published on the official Premier League website, Chilwell named his five best full-backs to have graced the English top-flight league era.

The England international named former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole, Manchester United right-back Gary Neville and left-back Patrice Evra in the list.

He also added current Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson and right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold to the list.

“My first Premier League full-back is Ashley Cole. Always had good things to say about Ashley Cole,” Chilwell said.

“My second full-back is Gary Neville. Won endless Premier Leagues, won a lot of trophies with Man United.

“My No. 3 for full-backs in the Premier League would be Patrice Evra because I watched a lot of United games growing up.

“My fourth full-back, I want to go for in the Premier League, is Andy Robertson. Because over the last few years, as a left-back, he’s someone I have respected, and I have seen what I have seen at Liverpool.

“And my fifth choice I am going to go for is Trent Alexander-Arnold. The thing that I go for is his crossing ability, range of passing, free-kicks, set-pieces.

Chilwell has been with Chelsea since 2020, making 89 appearances across competitions for the Blues, contributing nine goals and 13 assists.

The 26-year-old has an assist in four Premier League games for Chelsea this season
