Who is the greatest player in Premier League history?
It’s a question that has been asked many times down the years. Especially in recent times with no Premier League football to actually watch.
Of course, there are many acceptable answers considering the amount of world-class player that have graced our league since its inception.
But the Mirror have attempted to answer the question once and for all.
They’ve produced a list of the Premier League’s 20 greatest ever players and ranked them from 20-1.
Let’s take a look at what they came up with:
20 | Vincent Kompany
Manchester City got a lot for the £8 million they paid of Kompany back in 2008.
Eleven years of incredible service saw the Belgian become a club legend, winning four Premier League titles.
19 | Dennis Bergkamp
Technically, Bergkamp is one of the greatest to have played the game and scorer of possibly the best goal the league has seen against Newcastle in 2002.
He finished with 87 goals in 315 Premier League appearances and three league titles.
18 | Luis Suarez
Suarez’s 2013/14 season is possibly the greatest individual campaign in the Premier League with 31 goals in 33 league games.
He was a controversial figure but he was an incredible striker.
17 | John Terry
From one controversial figure to another.
Terry was an incredible servant to Chelsea, playing almost 500 times in the league, winning five titles.
16 | David Silva
Silva has been a joy to watch for the past decade at Man City.
The Spaniard will be sorely missed when he leaves.
15 | David Beckham
It’s often forgotten just how good Beckham actually was. But six Premier League titles during his time at Old Trafford goes some way to explaining it.
14 | Steven Gerrard
Liverpool’s greatest ever player.
Gerrard spent 17 seasons at his boyhood club and, while he never lifted the Premier League title, he managed 120 goals in 504 appearances.
13 | Rio Ferdinand
Ferdinand formed a formidable centre-back partnership with Nemanja Vidic and claimed six titles during his time at Manchester United.
12 | Peter Schmeichel
The only goalkeeper to feature in the list. Costing United just half a million Schmeichel went on to play seven Premier League seasons at the Theatre of Dreams, winning five titles.
11 | Patrick Vieira
Vieira was crucial to Arsenal sides that challenged for league titles every season. He captained the Invincibles and won three titles in total.News Now - Sport News
