A back four few would have picked at the start of the season, simply because two of its members are thriving in new positions this term – James Milner (7.3) and Cesar Azpilicueta (7.62).

Indeed, whilst the former England international has transformed himself from an industrious midfielder into an all-action left-back, versatile full-back Azpilicueta has moved inside to help form Chelsea’s virtually impenetrable three-man backline, which has conceded just two goals in their last eleven league games.

Kyle Walker’s (7.45) inclusion is somewhat less surprising; the right-back has played well for a few seasons now and is enjoying another strong campaign as Spurs’ marauding No.2; but Nicolas Otamendi (7.55) may raise some eyebrows, considering Man City have kept just three clean sheets this term.
