6: Javier Hernandez | Manchester United

A slightly more understandable one given the strength of the competition he's facing. 

Hernandez has had the rotten luck of having world-class strikers to fight against for the duration of his entire Manchester United career. 

Currently it's Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie keeping him out of the starting XI more often than not, but make no mistake; the Mexican striker is a clinical customer.

He'd happily walk into most other teams on the planet, but it'll take something special to elevate him from perennial benchwarmer.
