Top 10: Ultimate nightmare strikers (1)

Published Add your comment

Football fans across the country all have one player they would love to erase from the memory bank, star strikers who have taken great pleasure in tormenting a title rival or former club by scoring consistently with the pressure on in big matches.

Chelsea fans will recall with great glee the way Didier Drogba seemingly always managed to put Arsenal's defence to the sword, leaving the likes of Philippe Senderos and Johan Djourou still waking up in a cold sweat with a mere mention of the feared forward's name, but do the numbers match his status as one of the game's ultimate bogey men?

GMS has crunched the numbers to find out which players could be counted on to increase their goal tally against an important rival, with a primary focus on Premier League and a passing mention to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible exploits in La Liga.

Can you remember a player who always seemed to score against your club when it mattered?

If so have you say in the comment box below, if the memories aren't too painful!
