Top 15 Best right backs (RB) in the Premier League 2024

Published

on

Kieran Trippier
  • Right-backs are one of the most important players in any team. In the Premier League, where the competition is much higher, they play a crucial role in strengthening the defense.

 

  • That said, the EPL has some of the best right-backs in Europe, from Trent Alexander-Arnold, Kieran Trippier, and Kenny Tete to William Saliba.

 

 

15. Wily Boly

 

Ivorian star Wily Boly also makes the list. Although he is primarily a centre-back, he has shown to be capable at right back.

He has been a key player for Nottingham Forest this season.

 

14. Neco Williams

 

Neco Williams is one of the fastest-rising right-backs in the EPL. The former Liverpool youth star is part of Nottingham Forest’s first team this season.

Although he has not played regularly, he is one of the best youngsters in English football.

 

13. Malo Gusto

 

Chelsea star Malo Gusto could be one of the new faces in the EPL, but he is gradually settling into the system and patterns of the league.

Malo Gusto joined the club from French club Olympique Lyon for £ 26.3 million.

 

So far, he has shown to be a player capable of winning at one -versus one situation, but he needs a final touch to his game.

Of course, he continues to improve and adapt to the new environment.

 

12. Axel Disasi

 

Axel Disasi is one of the top contributors in Chelsea’s defence, especially in the centre-back and right-backs.

The Frenchman joined Chelsea from AS Monaco and has fared well under Mauricio Pochettino. However, his position in the first team is heavily contested.

 

11. Kenny Tete (7.13)

 

Kenny Tete was one of the top revelations of the English Premier League last season. The Dutch footballer who plays for Fulham had an outstanding performance in the EFL Championship that helped the Cottagers earn promotion to the top flight.

 

In the 2022/23 season, Kenny Tete was outstanding for the team to the extent that head coach Marco Silva hailed his contributions.

 

10. Matty Cash

 

Matty Cash is one of the most important players at Aston Villa and has been a pivot for Unai Emery in his defensive selections.

He has been a regular starter in the first team under Unai Emery and has been impressive.

 

9. Aaron Wan Bissaka

 

Despite the setbacks, Aaron Wan Bissaka retains his position as one of the best right-back options. His newfound form under Erik Ten Hagg has been applauded.

 

Manchester United overall has not been convincing this season, but a lot is expected of the team.

 

8. Valentino “Tino” Livramento

 

Tino Livramento is one of the fastest-rising footballers in English football. The versatile youngster broke into Eddie Howe’s team after he arrived from Chelsea and has successfully cemented his place in the starting lineup.

It was an injury-marred Tino’s start to lift at Newcastle United.

His performance makes him to be considered as one of the best summer signings in the English Premier League.

 

7. Diogo Dalot

 

Diogo Dalot has transformed into a defensive stalwart for Man United. The Portuguese, alongside Raphael Varane and Lisandra Martínez, successfully built a rock-solid defense for the red side of Manchester.

 

One of the areas that distinguish Diogo Dalot from other Premier League right-backs is that he is more of an attack-minded player and is capable of making offensive runs when necessary.

 

According to statistics, Dalot is one of the players that produces the most progressive passes per 90 minutes.

 

6. Ben White

 

Benjamin White is one of the most outstanding players at Arsenal and has been key to the club’s form in the league.

 

Although initial questions were raised over the club’s decision to splash £50 million for his services from Brighton in 2021, he has been able to live up to expectations.

 

Ben White is a ball-playing defender, a utility player who can play as a centre-back or fullback. This season, he has been deployed at right-back by head coach Mikel Arteta, and he has not failed to deliver on it.

 

5. Reece James

 

Reece James is one of the top defensive talents in the EPL. The Englishman is also the captain of Chelsea.

 

James has been a key player at Chelsea. His performance over the years earns him the place of the best defenders in the world.

 

This season has been challenging, however, mainly because of the disappointing injury which had prevented him from playing regularly.

 

4. Kieran Trippier

 

Keiran Trippier has been in good form for Newcastle United since he arrived at St James’s Park from Atletico Madrid last year. The English defender is one of the key players in Eddie Howe’s squad.

 

Trippier has moved from being a defender to one of the team’s leaders and the charge to return the good old days at St James’s Park.

 

3. Kyle Walker

 

Kyle Walker deserves to be on every list he finds himself. The Englishman has been outstanding over the years at Manchester City.

 

The defender has been a leader at the Etihad Stadium and was recently handed the captainship at Man City despite the presence of Kevin De Bruyne.

He played a significant role in the Manchester City treble-winning season.

 

2. Pedro Porro

 

Pedro Porro is one of the biggest defensive additions in the Premier League lately. The Spaniard joined Spurs from Sporting Lisbon and balanced the defence, especially this season.

 

The Spanish defender has been applauded for his versatility and ability to make decisive interventions.

 

1. Trent Alexander-Arnold 

 

Although Liverpool has been unable to find their footing this season, Trent Alexander-Arnold has remained the best in his position.

 

Most notably, last season, Arnold was a key player in the defense and was eventually voted into the UEFA Team of the Season for 2021/22 following his performance throughout the campaign. He was also in the PFA team of the season.

 

Alexander Arnold is a versatile player who has shown to be capable of playing different roles other than right back.

 

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has even experimented with the right back in the middle and other attacking positions, which has been successful.
