The Premier League has seen some brilliant utility players over the course of its lifespan. But for those who don’t know – what exactly is a ‘utility player’?
Simply put, a utility player is a footballer who can effectively play in two or more positions. For example, Eric Dier at Tottenham Hotspur usually plays as a centre-back, but he can also do a respectable job in holding midfield.
For this list, we want something a bit more than this – we’re looking at players who could play in several different roles – some of which required completely different skillsets.
