Cesar Azpilicueta has been praised left, right and centre from various people for his form at Chelsea ever since he made the left back position his own. Now, he's been named as the best Defender in the League!
Speaking a few weeks ago, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher on SkySports' Monday Night Football, were asked who they each believed to be the best and BOTH stated that followed closely by Gary Cahill, John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic, Azpi was the best:
I am keen to hear your opinion's on their verdict.
Much has been said of Cesc Fabregas and his return to the Premier League with Chelsea. With six assists already in four games, he is getting the plaudits for his role in our attacking third but the defensive side of his game on Saturday has been picked apart on SkySports' Monday Night Football by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher.
What you're about to see is the inevitable result of Gary Neville (a prominent ex-representative of Manchester United) asking Noel Gallagher (musician and noted Manchester City fanatic) to sign his guitar after the pair met to preview the recent Manchester derby for Sky Sports.
Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher analyzed the Manchester derby in detail on Monday night during the latest episode of Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.
The duo dissected the match, discussing who "the burglar" was in the match, where Manchester United's passing let them down, how Manchester City are doing a better job than United at making runs into space and creating clinical passes, and how United are not getting the best out of Robin van Persie.
Gary Neville has defended Robin Van Persie's performances, saying that the Dutchman's poor start to the campaign was down to a lack of help from his teammates, who must do more to help him.
Van Persie has scored three times in nine Premier League games and has come under criticism for looking uninterested and for not being as sharp in front of goal as he was during the World Cup in Brazil and Neville admitted the former Arsenal captain was beginning to be under pressure.
On SkySports "Monday Night Football" last night, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher took an in depth look at Chelsea's draw with Manchester United last Sunday and have some very interesting observations.
I think they have both made some real valid arguments. The way United started the game, adopting the 4-3-3 formation that Chelsea struggled to come to terms with in that first half.
Former Manchester United captain and current Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville commented on his former club's 5-3 defeat at Leicester City yesterday.
Neville shared his thoughts with fellow Sky Sports pundits Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and host Ed Chamberlain following the conclusion of Sunday's match between Manchester City and league-leading Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.
Gary Neville has launched an attack on Manchester United's transfer policy this summer, claiming the club lacks control and that they've overpaid for some of their summer signings.
Neville also criticised the club's decision of parting way with Danny Welbeck, a choice that Neville said he was struggling to understand, while the former United right-back insisted the £150m United have splurged this summer were the result of poor strategy and overpaying players.
With no Champions League or even...gasp...Europa League football this season to dangle as a sweetner, Manchester United had to turn to one of their highest-ranking foot soldiers in order to get the loan deal for Radamel Falcao over the line.
It was bound to happen. It always does with a new relationship. The first few months are like a fairytale, they draw you in and fill you with hope and before you know it you're swept into a whirlwind romance showing no signs of letting up.
It wasn't like this last time around. The last didn't fill me with the confidence I needed to go forward, it wasn't a walk in the park, there was no singing, dancing or shouting from the rooftops and to be honest, I just wasn't happy.
Chelsea full back Cesar Azpilicueta was lauded as the best defender in the Premier League by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher this week during the Monday Night Football show on Sky Sports.
Neville and Carra analyzed why they think the Spanish international is at the top of his game, and how much of a difference he's made for Chelsea this season as the Blues continue to surge ahead at the top of the table.
We're back on the Premier League horse today, looking to canter to victory against a Burnley that sit bottom of the table and have yet to win a game. For most fans of most clubs that would be a stat of great comfort, for some reason I find it vaguely terrifying (although this might also be because I woke up late and I'm really hungry).
On this week's episode of Monday Night Football, Sky Sports analyst Gary Neville analyzed where new signing Angel Di Maria will play for Manchester United.
The analysis discusses what that means for Juan Mata, as well as all of the other options the signing will give United. On top of that, Neville discusses the depth issue and whether having a lot of left footed footballers is a good thing or not.
It was interesting to see the reaction of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher on SkySports's Monday Night Football last night. Both have stated that it's between Chelsea and Manchester City for the title. I was wondering if you agree?
Speaking after Chelsea's response to going a goal down to Burnley and winning the game 3-1 by half time, Neville said:
"I'm not writing Arsenal and Liverpool off on the first day of the season, but I'm not sure how they can win it.
Sky Sports pundits Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher got into a fascinating debate on the first Monday Night Football episode of the season as they discussed the new fad of wing backs in the modern game, and whether they're much different than the modern day full back.
The 3-5-2 formation proved to be the catalyst for the debate between the former Manchester United and Liverpool defenders.
It goes without saying that the amount of soccer available to American "soccer" fans is astounding.
This summer, ESPN/ABC made sure every match of the World Cup was available live on television, Internet or even app. Meanwhile, NBC Sports Group is kicking off its second season covering the Barclays Premier League, which will see the broadcast company showcase all 380 matches of the season on its networks and over the web.
We are a week away from the start of the Premier League season and it's seems Chelsea are most pundit's tips for the Premier League title. Gary Neville believes it's going to be very difficult to stop Chelsea.
Now being honest with you, I couldn't stand Gary Neville as a player but as a pundit, he has more than breached the gap after the departure of Andy Gray.
In which, after being loudly challenged by Joe Hart to do so, Wayne Rooney tucks away an almost identical free-kick away during England's final training session prior to their win over Estonia the following day.
Eden Hazard scored his first goal of the season against Leicester on Saturday as Chelsea beat the newly promoted side 2-0. According to Gary Neville, this should be the season Hazard takes the next step.
Voted Chelsea's Player of the Year last season, Eden Hazard had a fantastic season, his second since he signed from Lille and he keeps getting better and better.
Small-scale pundit warfare erupted on Twitter last night in the wake of Diego Costa's dismal efforts to con a penalty out of refereeMichael Oliver by hurling himself over Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton at Turf Moor with Stan Collymore ultimately vowing to walk away from the broadcasting profession to prove his point.
