The six players with the most combined votes will enter the Premier League Hall of Fame.

Didier Drogba

Blessed with pace, power and skill, Drogba was instrumental in helping Chelsea to two successive Premier League titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06, followed by two more in his remaining time with the club.

The Ivorian’s 104 Premier League goals are the most by an African, with many of them being struck spectacularly from distance or powered in with his head.

His goalscoring ability helped him win the Golden Boot on two occasions.

What they said

"He's remarkable. First of all he's a team player. After that, he's got one of these ‘old-days' mentalities: not selfish, not vain, a humble guy who plays and fights for the team.” - Jose Mourinho  

“He has always harmed us (Arsenal) and he continues. He is a winner and he will be like that until the end of his life.” - Arsene Wenger

“People talk about Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney, the great strikers, but he is right up there. People that score in finals and in the big games, he is right up there.”  - Frank Lampard
