It has often been viewed as the least glamorous position in football, a role no kid wanted to have on the school field and one that was long overlooked even in the professional game. The full-back, however, has had a makeover in recent years and nowhere is the position's resurgence better demonstrated than in the Premier League this season.Left-back Marcos Alonso has helped set up five goals for Chelsea this season, more than any other teammate, and also has scored one.Elsewhere, one weekend last month saw one wing-back (Matt Doherty) set up another (Jonny Otto) for a goal for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.At Bayern Munich, he once lined up a team with four full-backs and no center backs.City won the Premier League by 19 points last season despite Mendy only featuring in seven games because he was sidelined for seven months with a serious knee injury.
