The Premier League's Greatest 'Streets Will Never Forget' Players Have Been Ranked

A YouTube channel has ranked every 'Streets Will Never Forget' Premier League player and four men make the top tier.


Players who earn the tag of 'Streets Will Never Forget' may not have been world class, but they're arguably just as important to English football as the bonafide greats.

But the debate has never been settled, who is the ultimate 'Streets Will Never Forget' superstar?

Football Daily have tasked themselves with creating the ultimate TierMaker and across 15 players, it is Michu, Adel Taarabt, Hatem Ben Arfa and Dimitri Payet who come out on top.

Check out the entire list below.

Tier 5

Rory Delap

Tier 4

Yannick Bolasie

Asamoah Gyan

Rory Delap is the only player to sit in the fifth tier, with the former Stoke City man's long throw ins giving defenders nightmares in the late 2000's.

His son Liam debuted for Manchester City in midweek and it is a testament to Rory's legacy that everybody asked 'but can he take a good thrown in?'

Tier four sees Yannick Bolasie make an appearance and although a big money move to Everton hasn't worked out, his time at Crystal Palace was a joy to watch.

Fearless in attack, the Congolese international's flair caught full-backs off guard during his first few seasons in the top flight.

Clint Dempsey, Wilfried Bony and Geovanni make up the third tier despite all three playing for current 'big six' clubs at some point in their career.

Tier two is when the big hitters enter the fray. Morten Gamst Pederson and Jay-Jay Okocha's lethal set pieces make them the perfect candidates for the list.

Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse fittingly enter together after their prolific time at Newcastle United and Arsenal winger Andrey Arshavin also slides in.

In the top tier are the quartet who perhaps personify what 'Streets Will Never Forget' means.

Hatem Ben Arfa and Adel Taarabt's dazzling skills made them unplayable on their day - the only problem being how often 'their day' was.

Dimitri Payet's West Ham United spell rejuvenated his career and last but not least, Michu.

So legendary he even inspired Erling Haaland, the Spaniard netted 18 goals in his debut season for Swansea City and helped fire them to League Cup glory.

Not a bad return from a player who cost just £2 million.

Who do you think is the ultimate 'Streets Will Never Forget' player?
