After the second international break of the season, Premier League football came back last Saturday. Tottenham Hotspur beat Manchester City to top the Premier League table, while Liverpool beat Leicester City to earn 20 points, as much as first-placed Spurs.
The integral part of the teams are fullbacks as they are carrying both attacking and defensive responsibilities. And the most teams, who are topping Premier League table have classy fullbacks. But the role of the right-backs are also huge for the teams.
Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is the living proof of the importance of a good right-back at the team. The England international has creative abilities, which helps Liverpool a lot. Here are five best right-backs in the Premier League right now.
Former Chelsea player has established himself as one of the best right-backs at Brighton. The 20-year-old has more than a 75% success rate in tackles and he adds more value going forward. The player has three assists and a goal to his name already.
Cash showed his class after joining Aston Villa by subduing a striker of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang against Arsenal. He has an almost 77% success rate in tackles. The 23-year-old has been crucial to Villa’s plans this season.
James has kept Cesar Azplicueta out of Chelsea’s first team and showed his brilliance. The England international has the pace and skills to be one of the best in his position. He has one goal and an assist to his name in the league this season.
Liverpool beat Leicester City with a 3-0 score and the key behind the Foxes defeat was undoubtedly the absence of Timothy Castagne. The player joined Leicester from Atalanta and made an immediate impact. Castagne, who has one goal and two assists fit in perfectly to Brendan Rodger’s side.
Alexander-Arnold played a significant role in Liverpool as they became European and English champions. His whipping crosses and pinpoint delivery is up there with the best wingers in the game. He is one of the Red’s primary creative talents.
