Dimitar Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov
Always classy and often deadly in front of goal, Fulham pulled off one of the signings of the summer when the Bulgarian striker joined from Manchester United. Berbatov has started well, averaging a goal every two games. The 31-year-old was the Premier League's joint top scorer in the 2010/11 season and could cause Arsenal's defence problems if selected on Saturday.
