Top 10 Premier League Right Backs

10 – Kyle Walker

The Tottenham right back has been first choice for the club since the 2011-12 season after a successful loan spell at Aston Villa and has grown into the role and is one of the main members of the squad that are now challenging for the Premier League.

9 – Dan Petrescu

The Romanian may have doubled up as a winger at times but his main position was right back and he was definitely a threat from the position. Most known for his time at Chelsea, he also turned out for Sheffield Wednesday, Bradford City and Southampton in England.

8 – Nathaniel Clyne

The 24 year old has been one of the successful transfers of the Brendan Rodgers era at Liverpool and will likely be one of the key members of Jurgen Klopp’s team going forward. Clyne impressed as a youngster at Crystal Palace and made the step up comfortably.

7 – Seamus Coleman

One of the bargains in Premier League history. When Everton paid £60,000 for the right back they wouldn’t have believed how good he will be seven years later. He is one of the most impressive full backs in the league and is a danger to the opposition.

6 – Stephen Carr

The right back has retired twice but somewhat surprisingly after he came back from his first retirement he arguably became an even more consistent player. He appeared over 200 times for first club Tottenham before moving onto Newcastle United and Birmingham City where his career was rejuvenated.

5 – Gary Kelly

The one club man played over 500 times for Leeds and had it not been for a few injuries he would have made even more appearances. He was a key part of their rise up the Premier League but also had to suffer as they struggled financially.

4 – Branislav Ivanovic

Originally thought of as a centre back, he made the right back position his own at Stamford Bridge and with two Premier League titles to his name, everyone knows how good he is. He may not be having the best of seasons but nobody has at Chelsea.

3 – Bacary Sagna

Somewhat surprisingly the right back has never won the Premier League despite being a member of some of the best teams to compete. Now at Manchester City he thought moving from Arsenal would guarantee a title but this hasn’t happened and he hasn’t been automatic first choice.

2 – Pablo Zabaleta

A definite fan favourite at Manchester City, Zabaleta has been one of the most important signings for the club as he has been one of the most consistent players over the years. With over 250 games for the club he will go down as a cult hero.

1 – Gary Neville

Manchester United may never have a better right back in their history and is also one of England’s greatest and most consistent players. To remain first choice at Old Trafford for so long is an achievement in itself. His work as a pundit shows his footballing knowledge.
