The number has most famously been worn by Didier Drogba, Oscar, Damien Duff, Boudewijn Zenden and Dennis Wise.

Thiago Silva has been handed the No.6 shirt by Frank Lampard. The former PSG skipper has mostly worn the No.2 or No.3 throughout his career, both of which are taken by Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso respectively.

Correspondingly, left-back Ben Chilwell wore the No.3 for Leicester City, however has needed to change to the No.21, which has most recently been worn by Davide Zappacosta.
