On The Chopping Block: Seven Premier League Starters Who Could Be Benched Next Season

Something we often forget about professional footballers is that unlike most of us, they actually have pretty lousy job security. A manager will bench a player who is playing poorly without any second thought because the success of the team is more important than any individual player.
