Chelsea icon, William Gallas, has named the two best defenders in the Premier League.

He, however, snubbed the likes of Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and Manchester United’s Raphael Varane.

Gallas, a former France international, spent over ten years in the Premier League and won two titles at Chelsea before signing for Arsenal in 2006.

The Frenchman was in Arsenal for four seasons before moving to Tottenham Hotspur, where he stayed until 2013.

Asked by Genting Casino who he sees as the best defenders in the English top flight at the moment the Frenchman named Man City’s Ruben Dias and Chelsea’s Thiago Silva.

“I will speak about two players. I will speak about Thiago Silva because, he always finds the edge. I think what he does for Chelsea, it’s magnificent.

“…Thiago Silva is 36 years old. He is the boss of that defence. He’s mature, he’s got experience.

“Thiago Silva, with his experience, he takes all the pressure on his shoulder..

“So that’s why Chalobah, Rudiger, Christensen play so well. Thiago Silva is one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

‘But as well, you’ve got Ruben Dias at Man City. He is a very strong, and a very thoughtful defender…”
