Kelly has been better than Sakho so far this season, but when fully fit Sakho is probably the better player. However that's not to say that Martin Kelly hasn't improved because he has. He's definitely good enough to be a starter for a mid-table Premier League club now, which wasn't always the case. (I like the way he has become more dominant in terms of interceptions, presumably as a result of increased confidence.) Tomkins is also excellent, and Joel Ward would be more than adequate as a centre back in a 3. Cahill, Sakho, Kelly, Ward, Tomkins is a central defence full of quality and strength in depth.

On top of that PVA and Schlupp are decent attacking left back options. I dare say Townsend could do a job as a right wing back, and I think Camarasa played there once or twice for Cardiff, but ideally we'd sign a new right back. But then we are well stocked with solid midfielders too: Kouyate, McArthur, Milivojevic, McCarthy plus Meyer and Camarasa.

It's probably the way we should go once Zaha has been sold.
You want to build the team next season around a 30 and a 34 year old centre back ?
