Mascherano? Aguero? Tevez? Choose your favourite player from Argentina to have graced the competition

Some exceptionally gifted players have come from overseas to light up the Premier League, and we are celebrating the talent that has arrived from a few selected nations.

Argentina

We are looking at the achievements of the Premier League’s greatest Argentinians, and we want to know who you think has been the best.

A total of 71 have played in the competition since Horacio Carbonari and Juan Cobian both made their debuts on 15 August 1998 for Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday respectively.

When it comes to scoring goals few can match Sergio Aguero, whose 180 Premier League goals have helped Manchester City win four titles.

A Golden Boot winner in 2014/15, he became the top-scoring foreign player in the competition's history earlier this year, surpassing Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Another striker to make his mark was Carlos Tevez, whose influence helped West Ham United avoid relegation in 2006/07 before he went on to lift the Premier League Trophy with both Manchester United and Man City.

His team-mate at West Ham, Javier Mascherano, would eventually go on to be a key player at Liverpool for four seasons until he left in August 2010.

Pablo Zabaleta won two PL winners' medals with Man City and the West Ham defender's 303 appearances surpasses those of any other compatriot.

Hernan Crespo enjoyed two separate spells at Chelsea, winning the title in 2005/06. Juan Sebastian Veron joined Crespo at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2003 after two seasons with Man Utd.
