While at Manchester United, it took time for Phil Neville to seek out his best position within the team. In 2005 he moved to Everton, and it had been there where he really developed into a pacesetter on the pitch. This might explain why he was substituted 82 times in his Premier League career, with the bulk of these coming during his time at Manchester United.
The big strong centre half was adored by the Everton faithful during his time at Goodison Park. However, within the latter stages of his career he became something of a journeyman, playing for Portsmouth, Wigan and Sheffield United. During this point he was playing past his peak and suffered variety of injuries. In total he was subbed off 44 times in his Premier League career.
Throughout his career with Manchester United and Sunderland, he was substituted 47 times in total.
Graeme Le Saux
Le Saux started his career playing as a left winger, before turning himself into one among the simplest attacking left backs of his era. It’s likely his time as a winger contributed to him being subbed off a complete of 55 times within the Premier League.
It’s unlikely Ryan Giggs are going to be too upset being named in our most subbed XI, once you consider he won a complete of 13 Premier League trophies. However, he was substituted a powerful 134 times during his 632 Premier League appearances for Manchester United.
Scholes was subbed 126 times in his Premier League career. In fairness, many of those occurred when he came out of retirement to assist a weak United side.
A three time Premier League winner, and one among the brightest prospects we had seen when he burst onto the scene at West Ham. Cole was subbed 117 times, which isn’t a huge surprise once you consider the Chelsea squad he was a part of.
A cult hero to several Newcastle fans, famous for audacious skills and goals to match. Perhaps he was not the foremost willing defender, which might explain partially his 130 substitutions within the Premier League.
The Dutch wizard was subbed 104 times within the Premier League for Arsenal. In fairness, he had presumably caused enough trouble for defenders by 80 minutes to deserve a rest.
The dominant striker was subbed 125 times during his Premier League career, which saw him upfront for Leicester City, Liverpool, Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa.
