Currently the Premier League’s second longest-serving player – only behind Chelsea captain John Terry – is fellow defender Tony Hibbert of Everton.

The 35-year-old; who was born in Merseyside, Liverpool, has made over 300 first-team appearances for the Toffees – but has amazingly never scored for the Goodison Park outfit.

Hibbert, who grew up as an Everton fan, joined the English top-flight club as a young boy back in 1991 and has since been loved by the Goodison faithful given the right-back’s one-club status and loyalty to the Evertonians.

Despite originally joining the side as a midfielder; Hibbert made his first-team debut in Everton’s Premier League fixture against West Ham United back in March 2001, earning the Toffees a penalty following Stuart Pearce’s high challenge.

However; following the impressive emergence of fellow defender Seamus Coleman at right-back, Hibbert has firmly lost his first-team spot under current boss Roberto Martinez due to the Irishman’s displays, failing to make a single appearance so far this season (2015/16).
