El Statto has more great graphics for us on premium defenders, Ben Davies is bossing it there too! It is also worth noting that he is at the cheaper end of the ‘Top Performk g Defenders’ too, with a decent saving from Antonio Valencia and Cesar Azpilicueta.

But is Ben Davies a rotation risk? Ben Dinnery has been charting the return of Danny Rose, as you can see we’ve been waiting rather a long time and the date keeps being put back! He has been out injured for nearly 9 months now.

Even when he does become available, it’s going to be tough for him to get his starting berth back!

UPDATE: Danny Rose was pictured back in training on Wednesday 11th October. We’ve had no word yet of when he will be match fit, and he did look a little out of shape, but it does cast a shadow of doubt over the security of Ben Davies place in the starting 11 given the congested fixture schedule.
