Tackling is a dying art, right?

Wrong. The Premier League is packed with players who love a challenge, whether they are operating in the centre of the park, battling away in the heart of defence or leading the front line.

Of course, with games in England’s top tier played at high speed, those who do fly into duels must walk a disciplinary tightrope.

However, the risk is often worth the reward as players who wear their heart on their sleeve are very much appreciated by the fans.
