Premier League Centre-Backs Ranked From 'World Class' To 'Sh*t'

A fan has controversially ranked Premier League centre-backs from 'world class' to 'sh*t'.

Twitter user @KwameCFC got social media talking with his ranking of defenders in England's top flight.

Only Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk, Chelsea's Thiago Silva and Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte are considered 'world class' in the league.

Just below that trio, Ruben Dias, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, James Tarkowski and Tyrone Mings who are ranked 'very good'.

'Good' contains the likes of John Stones, Harry Maguire, Joel Matip and Ben White, among others.

A host of centre-backs make up the 'average' section including Eric Dier, Conor Coady, Eric Bailly and Phil Jones to name but a few.

Unfortunately for the likes of Daniel Amartey and Davinson Sanchez, they sit in the 'sh*t' section - along with Leeds United pair Diego Llorente and Robin Koch.

@KwameCFC's full ranking is below:
