We are looking at the 25 nominees who have been shortlisted for the Premier League Hall of Fame in 2022.

The six players with the most combined votes from the fans and a Premier League Awards panel will enter the Hall of Fame. Fans had their say by voting up until 21:00 BST on Sunday 3 April.

Patrice Evra

Dominant in defence and potent in attack, the Frenchman was a virtually ever-present figure during a period when Manchester United were the Premier League's dominant force.

Evra spent eight full seasons at Old Trafford and won the title in five of those, including three consecutive triumphs in 2006/07, 2007/08 and 2008/09.

The left-back started 175 of Man Utd’s 190 Premier League matches across his final five seasons at the club.

He contributed a total of 98 clean sheets while setting up 21 goals and scoring seven. He saved his most prolific form for 2012/13, when he was on target four times as Man Utd claimed their 13th PL crown.

Evra went on to have a brief spell with West Ham United at the end of his career, making five Premier League appearances.

What they said

"I've always been blessed with a good memory but Patrice Evra? There's a man with a brain. He could speak five languages and was a great help in the dressing room. His father was a diplomat. It showed." – Sir Alex Ferguson

"His consistency is incredible. He's been asked to play every single week for seven or eight years, and the physical drain on you is massive, but he has been absolutely sensational. He was the best left-back in the Premier League for years. His influence in the dressing room is not something you will understand unless you've been in there with him. At times, he was almost the glue that connected it." Gary Neville

Did you know?

Patrice Evra made 273 Premier League appearances for Manchester United, the most of any non-British or Irish outfield player for the club. 

During his time with Man Utd between January 2006 and the end of 2013/14, Evra made more tackles (750) and interceptions (476) than any other player at the club.

Evra was on the winning side in 186 of his 273 Premier League matches for the Red Devils, the best win-rate of any player with at least 250 appearances for the club (68 per cent).
