Leighton Baines

Leighton Baines
Solid in defence and dangerous going forward, the left back has firmly established himself as one of the best full backs in the Premier League in recent years. The 27-year-old has been capped 13 times by England since making his debut in 2010. Baines is an excellent set-piece taker and Arsenal will be mindful of giving free kicks away around their area.
