And it is up to you to decide who makes it through to the semi-finals.

You've got until 10pm GMT tonight to vote for your favourite in the poll below, and ensure that they get through to a place in the last four.

Here's a bit more on the contenders.

Steven Gerrard

Never being able to lift the Premier League trophy is something that is always thrown at Gerrard whenever there are debates about his standing within the game and up against his contemporaries, but in truth Liverpool wouldn't have got as close it as they often did without his efforts.

The midfield powerhouse was a force of nature at times, and was determined to do all he could to ensure success for his boyhood club.

That made him one of the most watchable Premier League players there's ever been, and a player highly regarded across the world.

Thierry Henry

There was a time when nobody could come close to the Frenchman as the best forward plying his trade in the Premier League, and probably the world.

Henry graced the Gunners for eight years between 1999 and 2007, and then came back for a brief cameo in 2012 to the delight of supporters.

A quicksilver forward who was a deadly finisher, he brought grace and quality to the top end of the pitch for Arsene Wenger's side, and was a name struck fear into many a defence.
