Martin Keown is one of the finest defenders to grace the Premier League. Nicknamed ‘ The Rash ‘, due to his proficiency in man-marking, his two spells for The Arsenal amassed over 400 appearances. Beloved by fans for not only the accolades he earned, but the fiery embers of passion which were the fuel for his displays on the pitch, Keown is among the leading lights when it comes to Gunners players.
