Terry is now joint-top-scoring defender in PL history while an Irishman is 3rd
Leighton Baines, William Gallas and Julian Dicks also feature on the list.


JOHN TERRY’S GOAL againts Leicester last night means he is now the joint-highest-scoring defender in Premier League history.

Terry’s record is especially impressive given that unlike former Everton player, David Unsworth, who also managed 38 goals, he is not a regular penalty-taker.

Meanwhile, Leighton Baines, William Gallas, Julian Dicks and former Ireland international Ian Harte also feature on the list.

37-year-old Harte could conceivably add to his tally next season, as he is on the verge of promotion back to the Premier League with Bournemouth.
