GMS Academy member Ben Thornley looks at the top 10 players aged 32 or over in the Premier League.

Do you agree with his all-star line-up? Has someone been overlooked who you believe is deserving of a place in the top 10? Have your say in the comments box provided!

10. Kolo Toure, 32 - Liverpool

Liverpool's Jamie Carragher replacement was outstanding for Arsenal but struggled a bit at Manchester City.

He was recently signed by Brendan Rodgers for experience at the back and has looked back to his best in a Liverpool shirt.

9. Tomas Rosicky, 32 - Arsenal

Rosicky earned a permanent place in the Arsenal starting XI towards the end of last season and has not looked back since.

He offers the club creativity and desire, and can be likened to Arsenal legend Robert Pires.

8. Rio Ferdinand, 34 - Manchester United

Ferdinand is still a regular for Manchester United and England really could do with him in their squad.

He has been a huge success at Old Trafford and will go down as one of the greatest defenders of his generation.

7. John Terry, 32 - Chelsea

The Chelsea captain was rarely used by Rafa Benitez last season but has found himself back in the team under Mourinho. 

A Chelsea legend, Terry has become synonymous with the Blues over the last decade and has written his name into the club's history.

6. Dimitar Berbatov, 32 - Fulham

Arguably the most technically gifted on the list, Berbatov has played for Tottenham and Manchester United in the past.

He is still scoring goals in the Premier league even now and has much more to give, even at the age of 32.

5. Ryan Giggs, 39 - Manchester United

The oldest player on the list and definitely the most successful.

He is still playing games for Manchester United, even at the age of 39 - a true legend.

4. Ashley Cole, 32 - Chelsea

Still the world's best left-back, many fast wingers still find it hard to beat this man.

Chelsea would be mad to let him go any time soon.

3. Samuel Eto'o, 32 - Chelsea

Our sixth 32-year-old on the list, and probably the best player.

He has just joined the Blues on a free and is expected to lead their line for the season ahead.

2. Steven Gerrard, 33 - Liverpool

Arguably the greatest player in Liverpool's history, the Reds still look to their skipper for inspiration.

He has still got years left in him at the highest level and is central to Brendan Rodgers plans.

1. Frank Lampard, 35 - Chelsea

What more can you say about super Frank?

Chelsea's all-time top scorer is still playing great football and scored a sensational free-kick against Hull on the opening day of the season.

He is also the Premier league's highest scoring midfielder in history - a true English great.
