Starting with the Gunners, a team built by the great Arsene Wenger, with so much technical quality throughout.
5. Samir Nasri
French: 15 Caps, 2 Goals
Position: In the Hole/behind the striker
In a squad with so much young exciting technical talent, Samir Nasri stands out. After excelling in France with Marseille, Nasri has managed to make the move across the channel with ease. Samir is a gifted technical player who through a quick pass or flick, or one of his many tricks, can get out of any tight space. Always looking to recieve a pass and very dangerous when allowed to run at players, Nasri is a dangerous midfielder who can score and create goals.
4. Alex Song
Cameroonian: 19 Caps
Position: Holding Midfielder
Alex Song has had his critics during his time at Arsenal, but has developed into a very important member of their first eleven. After a blistering start at Bastia, he chose Arsenal for a bargain one million pounds. Since then, he has got better and better. Song has managed to mould together, his natural strength, athleticism and work rate with tactical solidarity and a cool head on the ball. Song is a dangerous physical force often using his sheer power to usher players off the ball as well as protect it. He has improved his distribution massively, and now rarely gives up the ball, while tactically, he is brilliant. He is very important for the Arsenal defensive unit and is the main protector of the back 2, when the wingbacks rush forward.
3. Andrei Arshavin
Russian: 51 Caps, 16 Goals
Position: In the Hole/Behind the striker
Arshavin is a strange case, as despite all his talent, no attention was brought to him till Zenit's UEFA cup run and Russia's exploits at Euro 2008. Since then Arshavin, has wowed the crowd with 4 goals against Liverpool and with his all round brilliant attacking player. Arshavin is one of the best players one on one in the Premier League. His technical ability, low centre of gravity and range of tricks combine to produce a very dangerous player when allowed space to run at a defender one on one. Arshavin though isn't just about tricks, he is a truly smart footballer. Arshavin's movement is brilliant and he always manages to find space, and his decision making is also very good. He knows when to dribble and when to pass, which many exciting players like him, struggle with. Arshavin has already showed at Arsenal, he can create as well as score, and is very important member of Arsenal's attacking trident.
2. Robin Van Persie
Dutch: 41 Caps, 14 Goals
Position: Second Striker
I feel Robin Van Persie would be currently rated much higher in world football, if it wasn't for all his injuries. Despite this, he has still developed into one of the best players in the Premier League. Van Persie combines his awesome technical ability, brilliant volleys and awesome left foot perfectly. Robin Van Persie's left foot is pure magic. He can swerve it either way, dip it, hit it hard, curl it in or pretty much do whatever he wants. This awesome shot makes him so dangerous anywhere around the 18 yard box, but Van Persie also creates. Van Persie is a creative genius, and always has a trick or a simple flick, to set up another striker. He see's what others don't and him taking most of the Arsenal set pieces, also helps his assist count. What makes Van Persie the ultimate player he is though, is his ability to always be able to get the ball out of his feet and into the perfect position to hit it, with one touch. A truly gifted player with a golden left foot.
1. Cesc Fabregas
Spanish: 48 Caps, 5 Goals
Position: Centre Midfielder
It is hard to believe that Cesc is only 23, as he seems to have been around for ever. After breaking into the Arsenal first team at 18, Cesc has only got better and better, to the stage where he is one of the best play makers in the world. Cesc has it all, work rate, an awesome tactical brain, vision, technical ability and the heart. No other player in the Premier League can control a game from the centre of midfield like Cesc. His vision is truly amazing with him seeing passes, the spectators in the crowd don't. Cesc's understanding of the game is amazing, and he always knows where to go to recieve the ball, where he needs to go and when he needs to touch the ball in order to make the pass he wants. These little things are what make him a great footballer. That combined with the work rate, leadership and aggression really make him indispensable for Arsenal. Too bad Cesc was born in Barcelona, not Bermondsey, as England could use a player like him.
