introducing… premier league hall of fame

GOALKEEPERS ... PETR CECH Cech is usually compared to Peter Schmeichel and David Seaman in debates about the Prem’s greatest goalkeeper, but the ex-Chelsea and Arsenal man has the numbers to support him. He’s the only keeper with over 200 clean sheets, kept a record 24 in one season and won the title four times! DEFENDERS... JOHN TERRY If you were picking an all-time Prem XI, Terry would defo be a serious contender for captain!

GARETH BARRY Nobody’s played as many Prem games as Barry – he’s clocked up a record 653 appearances in a 20-year career. Wowzers!

He made his PL debut in August, and is in line for acall-up to Scotland’s senior squad later his month! SKILLS… Against Liverpool in the FA Cup, Gilmour sat deep and protected the defence by making load clever tackles and interceptions! He’s not a DM, though – when he gets on the ball, he always looks forward and can play short or long passes to get his team attacking! His balance and quick feet mean that he dances away from challenges when he gets closed down! IS HE THE NEXT… Jorginho? Some excited Scotland fans say Gilmour is the ‘Scottish Xavi’ and we can see why, but we reckon he could take over from Jorginho as the main playmaker in…
