Sead Kolasinac proves he’s Arsenal hardest player – who is your club’s toughest?

Kolasinac defended team-mate Mesut Ozil as two knife-wielding carjackers attempted to rob the pair in north London.

The Bosnian went viral as footage appeared of him heroically risking his own life to protect Ozil, as well as both of their wives, who were reportedly inside the car.

There have been suggestions that Kolasinac deserves to be recognised for his actions, with Piers Morgan demanding he’s made captain immediately.

And following his valiant efforts, Starsport has taken a look at which other Premier League bruisers deserve the title as the hardest at their club.

Arsenal – Sead Kolasinac

Obviously. The left-back may not feature much this season if Arsenal secure a deal for Kieran Tierney but he’s already cemented himself as a Gunners cult hero after yesterday’s drama.

Aston Villa – Tyrone Mings

He stamps on people’s faces for fun, enough said.

Bournemouth – Jefferson Lerma

Just the 12 yellow cards for Lerma in his debut season in England. Also helped kick England to pieces at the World Cup last summer.

Brighton – Shane Duffy

Sent off for a headbutt half an hour into Brighton’s biggest game of last season. Triple captained himself in fantasy football. Mental.

“Sead Kolasinac has cemented himself as an Arsenal cult hero after yesterday’s drama.”

Burnley – Ashley Barnes

It takes a special kind of nutcase to scream so loud in a linesman’s face that the referee is too scared to even book them. Was once banned for seven games for tripping up another ref.

Chelsea – Antonio Rudiger

Man mountain. Could probably tackle you with his deathly stare.

Crystal Palace – Luka Milivojevic

Palace fans literally sing ‘he’ll f***ing murder ya’ about him. Weapon of choice? Dead ball from 12 yards.

Everton – Yerry Mina

Never been beaten in the air. Broke FA rules so he could dance in a betting advert. Legend.

Leicester – Jamie Vardy

Won the league for Leicester on a diet of port and Red Bull. Hasn’t stopped running since 2015. Non-league hero.

Liverpool – Virgil van Dijk

The Liverpool player you’d least want to fight you and most want to spoon you. The gentle giant could take on anyone in the Premier League and he’d do it without breaking a sweat.

Manchester City – Ederson

Wears short sleeves and has a terrifying neck tattoo. Survived Sadio Mane’s decapitation attempt.

Manchester United – Nemanja Matic

If you can handle playing under Jose Mourinho, you can handle anything – including growing up in war-torn Serbia.

Virgil van Dijk

Newcastle – Jonjo Shelvey

Loves a tackle, loves a cheeky elbow. *Insert obvious joke about trying to kill Harry Potter*

Norwich – Grant Hanley

Scottish. Bearded. Never worn gloves in his life.

Sheffield United – Chris Basham

Never played for a club further south than Stafford, loves the north.

Southampton – Fraser Forster

The man is 6ft 7 and gets paid to have balls kicked at him. I dare you to try and fight him.

Troy Deeney

Tottenham – Victor Wanyama

Lures you into a false sense of security by tweeting about spaghetti before shoulder-barging you into next week.

Watford – Troy Deeney

Took on the entire Arsenal fanbase by himself by accusing the Gunners of lacking cojones – yet to be proven wrong.

West Ham – Mark Noble

Effortlessly threw a West Ham fan to the floor in the centre circle. Wears Phil Mitchell pyjamas.

Wolves – Willy Boly

You need a thick skin to get through your childhood with a first name like Willy. Probably helped that he’s literally a giant.
