Who’s Better: Finnan or Arbeloa?

Rafael Benitez has preferred Alvaro Arbeloa in the right-back position in recent times over Steve Finnan, and to be honest, it’s not a move that’s made much sense.

On ability they are roughly equal, and Finnan has the added advantage of experience that helps him read the game better and not only defend better but be more effective going forward.

So why is Rafa picking Arbeloa ahead of Finnan?
