The final player on this list may surprise a few, but, hear me out. Robert Huth made 322 Premier League appearances in his 17-year career and actually has three winners’ medals, having been involved with Chelsea in both the 2004/05 and 2005/06 campaigns, as well as with Leicester City in 2015/16.
Huth made 23 appearances with Chelsea over the course of those two title-winning seasons but, is a prime example of why you should never give up. Having left Stamford Bridge for Middlesbrough, before leaving to join Stoke City and eventually Leicester City, the 36-year-old German probably thought his chances of winning a Premier League title were over.
It had been 10 years at the start of the 2015/16 season since he had won his first league title, but, former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri’s arrival changed everything at Leicester in the summer of 2015, as Huth played an integral role in the Foxes powering through to win the league title, forming a good centre-back partnership with Wes Morgan, whilst the likes of Danny Drinkwater and Ngolo Kante protected the back four.
The former Stoke City man had some clutch moments in the campaign, scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 away win against Tottenham in January 2016, the team who would subsequently finish as runners-up, as well as scoring a vital brace in Leicester’s 3-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium against City, a game which seemingly gave the Foxes the belief that the Premier League title was theirs to lose.
