4. Robin van Persie
Having missed very few games in the last two seasons, Robin van Persie appears to have left his injury-troubled past behind him.
And it's easy to forget just how troubled he was.
The Dutchman managed less than 200 league appearances for Arsenal in eight injury-ravaged seasons in North London, and despite showing his obvious class, his inability to remain fit cost both his club and his own career.
Cesc Fabregas has gone on record to say that if van Persie had been able to remain fit Arsenal would have won the league.
It wasn't to be, and having lasted just one season at the Emirates without a major injury, the silky striker packed his bags for Old Trafford.
Van Persie will be remembered as a great Premier League striker, but without the injuries he may have been remembered as a striking Premier League great.
