Dimitar Berbatov
Always classy and often deadly in front of goal, Fulham pulled off one of the signings of last summer when the Bulgarian striker joined from Manchester United. Berbatov has enjoyed a successful first season, scoring 13 times. The 32-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.
