Manchester United legend Gary Neville rates Chelsea fullback Cesar Azpilicueta as the best defender in the Premier League.
The Spain defender has helped Chelsea get off to a near-perfect start to the season, with the unbeaten Blues four points clear at the top of the table after 10 games.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I’d say, for consistency of performances, it would be one of the Chelsea lads – and I’d probably say Azpilicueta.
“For technical defending, not making a mistake, not being in the wrong position, not getting caught out… I don’t see him making a mistake. And I have to say the Chelsea defenders aren’t far behind him; Gary Cahill, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic.
“But Azpilicueta, when I watch him, he’s as near to perfect as possible when it comes to defending; he’s immaculate.”
