Dennis Bergkamp

The Dutch magician became an Arsenal legend during his time in North London and regularly wowed fans with his perfect first touch and outrageous goals.

His goals against Leicester and Newcastle will always be up there with some of the best in Premier League history.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano’s antics on the field have almost become second nature over the last few years. Everything he does seems to have something special about it, whether it’s a goal or some silky skills.

The compilation above will have many fans asking “how?” on a number of occasions.


Ronaldinho is still doing his thing over in Brazil these days, but he’ll always be remembered for his mind-blowing antics for Barcelona and AC Milan.

The Brazilian midfielder used to make football look so easy while humiliating his opponents week in, week out.

Lionel Messi

The Argentinian has scored 365 goals in 455 career appearances in all competitions to date and he’s broken dozens of records along the way.

Rarely a season goes by without us seeing him running rings around defenders with ease all across Europe, which is why he’s won four Ballon d’Or’s.

Mesut Ozil

He may have endured a difficult first season in England after his £42.5million move to Arsenal last summer, but there’s a reason why the Gunners paid so much for him.

The German midfielder made his name with Real Madrid and was one of the biggest providers for Cristiano Ronaldo before he left.

And the below Vine shows you just how easy he can make things happen on the pitch…

Dimitar Berbatov

Not a lot of players can get away with being lazy in football. Dimitar Berbatov however, can, and he does almost every single week, getting results along the way.

He has been exceptional for pretty much every team he’s played for over the years and thrives on making football look so effortless.

These two videos of him that prove out how little effort it takes for the Bulgarian to be brilliant…

Mario Balotelli

The Italian is known for his off-field misdemeanors just as much as he is on the pitch, but that’s testament to the type of character he is. The striker might be a bit of bizarre personality, but he sure knows how to make playing football look easy.

Luis Suarez

The controversial striker has taken the Premier League by storm this season, scoring 31 goals in 32 appearances.

It’s a record that doesn’t just indicate how good he is, but also how easy football comes to him.

Just take a look at these goals and see for yourself…

Eric Cantona

The Frenchman became a Manchester United legend for being phenomenal every single week.

Some of the goals he scored, for both United and Leeds, were out of this world during the early years of the Premier League, as well as his match-winning performances.

This goal though, just sums up the man himself…

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

There’s nothing you can say about Zlatan that would do him justice. The Swedish international is one of the most egotistical footballers of the modern era and, whether you like it or not, he has reason to be.

He’s simply a genius on the football pitch and pure entertainment off it.

Here’s his top 20 goals to prove it…
