5 December 2015 - Barclays Premier League - Stoke City v Manchester City - Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City in action with Erik Pieters of Stoke City - Photo: Marc Atkins / Offside.

Pieters tussles with Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

Stoke City have been relatively solid during 2015, and much of this has been down to the showings from their defenders, including full-back Erik Pieters.

The Dutchman has pretty much been an ever-present in the starting XI since February, and is one of the side’s most consistent performers – so much so that he is our Potters’ Player of the Year.

The 27-year-old has been part of a defence that has kept seven clean sheets in the Premier League this season, as well as getting forward well and forging a strong partnership on the left-hand side with Marko Arnautovic.
