#9. Danny Drinkwater
How did this man win the Premier League and then get a place in the preliminary England squad for Euro 2016? It’s one of life’s great mysteries how Danny Drinkwater has gone from Manchester United reject to title-winning international in just a couple of years. Along with N’Golo Kante, Drinkwater formed a midfield partnership which secured a most unlikely title for Leicester City in 2016. The Englishman complemented Kante with the pair both being slow, small, and fairly unimpressive in possession. Drinkwater runs around for 90 minutes and makes the odd tackle and pass so it’s frankly baffling how the 26 year old became a key player in a title-winning team.
