1. Robin van Persie
Manchester United forward Robin van Persie has maintained his strong scoring record this season when fit but it's very much a tale of woe at Old Trafford right now, with the prospect of missing out on the Champions League next season alarmingly realistic.
Van Persie joined United in search of silverware and consistent success, but must now stand up and be counted if the Dutch international is going to stay a Champions League player.
The 30-year-old is very much up against it in terms of dragging United into the top four or winning the Champions League proper, with the rumour mill ready to press plan on a potential summer exit without a dramatic improvement from David Moyes' side.
