#2 Right Back: Bacary Sagna

Manchester City’s decision to sign Bacary Sagna from Arsenal came as a surprise to some. Pablo Zabaleta has been City’s mainstay at right back for some time now and has shown no signs of stopping. But when a player of Sagna’s quality comes up as a potential free signing, it is hard to resist the temptation. He edges out French compatriot Mathieu Debuchy because he is a lot more consistent and is better defensively.

Sagna has been one of the Premier League’s best defenders in the last five years. A tireless player, Bacary Sagna is a simple defender. He can go forward as easily as he can track back. Sagna is one of the least error-prone players. He averages just 1 defensive mistake in the past three seasons. He completed 86% of his passes in the Premier League and is also capable of playing centre back.

Sagna could push Pablo Zabaleta for a starting spot . This could get the best out of both these brilliant right backs.
