Chelsea legend John Terry names Jonny Evans as most underrated defender in Premier League after excelling for Leicester

CHELSEA legend John Terry thinks Jonny Evans is the most underrated defender in the Premier League.

The Aston Villa No 2 was blown away by the centre-back after watching him play and score against West Brom on Thursday.

And the former England captain could not help but take to social media to praise the Leicester star.

He snapped an image of Evans celebrating his goal on his Instagram stories along with the caption: "How good is Johnny Evans.

"The most underrated defender in the Premier League."

Evans helped the Foxes to a vital three points to keep Champions League qualification is firmly in their sights.

The Northern Ireland international often goes under the radar but he has been key to Brendan Rodgers with 26 league appearances this term.

And it has been some turn around for the 33-year-old, who was once ridiculed at Manchester United.

For a figure like Terry to lavish such praise on Evans shows how impressive he has been for The Foxes.

Evans could be crucial in the FA Cup final clash against Chelsea, and he will be determined to win the competition for the first time.


Terry may not be such a big supporter if that was to happen.

At £3.5million Leicester landed a brilliant bargain in signing Evans, as he has more than repaid that fee since his arrival.

He has been a staple in the side and looks set to help Leicester qualify for the Champions League for only the second time in their history.
