The six players with the most combined votes will enter the Hall of Fame.
Has any player blessed the Premier League with as many memorable goals as Matthew Le Tissier did with Southampton?
There were his chips over numerous chastened goalkeepers, the individual skills that set up long-range piledrivers, and an unrivalled record of success from the penalty spot with 25 out of his 26 spot-kicks converted.
It all helped one of England’s most gifted players in the 1990s become the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the competition. Saints’ talisman spent his entire professional career with the club.

"With someone of Matthew's ability in your side you've always got a chance of winning any match. He is a very special talent and he must be treated in a special way. I think that everyone at the club appreciates that, even the other players.” - Graeme Souness
“His talent was simply out of the norm. He could simply dribble past seven or eight players but without speed – he just walked past them. For me he was sensational.” - Xavi
“He is a great legend not just in Southampton, but across football.” - Sadio Mane
Le Tissier netted 100 Premier League goals, all for Southampton. He has scored 32 more goals for Saints than any other player in the Premier League.
During the 1994/95 season, only Alan Shearer (47) was directly involved in more Premier League goals than Le Tissier (34), with 19 goals and 15 assists.
Le Tissier scored the last ever goal at Southampton’s old ground, The Dell, netting an 89th-minute winner as they beat Arsenal 3-2 in May 2001.
