The English Premier League is the home of World class Football Clubs and Super stars footballers. There are elite goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, wingers and strikers.Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand said that Antonio Rudiger is currently the best defender in The EPL. There are some solid defenders such as Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Thiago Silva, Rúben Dias and Virgil Van Djik. Ferdinand strongly and confidently said that there is no defender better than the German, Rudiger since Tuchel started coaching Chelsea. The Chelsea defender has undergone painful and happy moments at Chelsea. Ups and downs since he joined The Blues. Under the management of Frank Lampard, Rudiger was out of favour. Lampard preferred the partnership of Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen or Thiago Silva in the middle of Chelsea's defence. Rudiger fell down up to the 3rd choice center back. He was not happy at all. He was furastrated and disappointed with his role at Chelsea by that time.

The arrival of Thomas Tuchel has rejuvenated Antonio Rudiger. He is a no nonsense defender who deals with opposition strikers and wingers with all his strength. Rudiger is known for his physicality and aggressive game. He has insane and crucial tackles which bullies attackers. Rudiger has started all Chelsea's Premier League games this season. The 28 year old has helped his team to keep 4 cleansheets in in the 5 EPL games they have played this season. He has scored 1 goal for Chelsea and also created some goalscoring chances. The German international plays a single game as if it is the last game of his career.
