Four Four Two have this week released a list of who they think are the top 100 footballers in the world in their December edition of their magazine.

The amount of Premier League stars on the list has plummeted since 2007, while the number of footballers currently plying their trade in the Bundesliga has risen.

In fact, Manchester United's Robin van Persie is the only Premier League star to make the top 10 as he came in at ninth.

We have decided to take a look at how Premier League sides fared in 2007 compared to 2013.

Click through the following pages to see who are friends at Four Four Two included on their list and comment in the box below if you feel there are any notable absentees.
