8. Ashley Cole
Moment of the Season - His superb goal-line clearance from Cesc Fabregas in front of his own fans during Chelsea's 1-0 Champions League semi-final first leg win at Stamford Bridge.
Editor's view - "It has become a cliche to include the fact that you either 'love or hate' Ashley Cole in eulogies about the Chelsea defender, which, after all, tells its own story. But having seen the left-back once again prove that he is the finest on the planet in his position this season, I frankly could not care less about his demeanour. And with a Champions League medal to go with his three Premier League titles and 98 England caps, I cannot imagine he, or his team-mates, even give it a second thought." - Sam Lyon - Chief editor of Goal.com UK
