Chelsea right-back Malo Gusto has been named as the best right-back in the Premier League this season.

Speaking to FootballJOE, Rio Ferdinand said: “I will go back four because most teams play it. Do you know who I am going to go with this year? Ben White has been good at Arsenal, obviously. I am going to go with Gusto at Chelsea.

“I think just for a young kid, how old is he, 20, the way he came out of nowhere and adjusted to the league immediately.

“I think Ben White’s a close second, but I am going to go for him, Gusto, because I think they haven’t missed Reece James this season in that role, no wonder I haven’t seen a lot of people talking about Reece James’ absence, and that tells you he must be playing well.”
