5) Cesar Azplicueta


The Spanish defender’s consistency and adaptability since he arrived at Chelsea in 2012 has to be commended. He played as a left-back as he won the title under Jose Mourinho in 2015, but just two years later, he was employed by Antonio Conte as a centre-back in a back three as he helped secure his second league trophy.

As of 2020, he is still a prominent fixture in Frank Lampard’s side, having been played as a right-back, right wingback and left-back under the current Chelsea boss’s management.
