The trio mentioned above are human highlight reels with the ball at their feet and struck fear into any attack - when performing at their best.
Ben Arfa's run against Bolton Wanderers and Taraabt's mesmirising dribble and outside the boot finish against Fulham have cemented their place as some of football's greatest solo goals.
But the 'streets will never forget' tag is one that surely belongs to former Swansea City striker Michu.
The Spaniard took the league by storm after a £2 million move from Rayo Vallecano and scored 18 goals in his debut campaign.
Papiss Cisse is another man who caught everyone's eye when emerging onto the scene and we all remember THAT goal vs Chelsea.
More underrated names are also featured in the compilation including Fulham's Bryan Ruiz and Yannick Bolasie.
A few players are listed in the video that some have taken issue with, including Luis Suarez and Yaya Toure.
The duo were world class during their time at Manchester City and Liverpool with many believing that's not the true essence of 'the streets will never forget'.
Having Yaya, Suarez and Coutinho in this list is disrespectful,

Regardless, it's still a joy to watch their individual highlights over and over again unless you're a Norwich City fan, and are sick of seeing Suarez decimate your team.
Who do you think is the ultimate 'streets will never forget' player?
