In Sports, there are times when a team looks dejected and need motivation. Or times when players are looking for someone to step up and raise their emotions. That’s why they need a captain as someone to look up to. A captain is the biggest asset any team can have. So here are the top 5 captains in the Premier League at the moment.
5. James Milner (Liverpool)
James Milner is the vice-captain of Liverpool FC as their official captain is Jordan Henderson. But sincerely speaking, Milner is the real leader on the pitch. Even in the tense game against Paris Saint Germain, he was the one who ran a marathon and almost shut down’s Neymar every attack. He is the undisputed penalty taker for the Reds, even with the presence of Salah, Firmino, and Mane.
4. Troy Deeney (Watford)
Normally, it’s rare to see strikers for the role of a club captain as they are perceived to be selfish which is a bad example for the rest of the team. But Watford captain Troy Deeney is an exception. Deeney has been a long-serving, loyal servant at Watford Football Club. His teammates have claimed that his immense work rate will always be motivated to watch when things are not going their way in a game.
3. Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
Azpilicueta is not the official captain of Chelsea if you go by the books as Gary Cahill remains the one. But the Spaniard is bestowed with the pride of leading the team as Cahill rarely features for the Blues. A captain should always be the first names on the teamsheet. Cesar is literally undroppable and has featured in every game for the Stamford Bridge club.
