Chelsea’s official USA account has provided a definitive answer to Goal.com’s query as to who the best defender in Premier League history may be.
There are a great amount of candidates for the accolade of being the best centre-back ever to grace England’s top tier, but if we’re being honest, there’s only one man who is truly deserving.
We will not mention any names ourselves, rather we will leave it to Chelsea’s official American Twitter account to clarify who the correct answer is.

Of course, we are bias, but no centre-back in Premier League history has been so heavily involved over such a prolonged period of time as Terry. He is the greatest there has ever been.
He was influential in Premier League triumphs in 2005 and 2015 – who else can boast such achievements? Nobody.
There is no argument, and we’re glad that the club’s official representatives acknowledge the reality. Here’s hoping that others take note.
