With the African Cup of Nations heading towards a finale, football stats experts Opta have produced a list of the greatest Premier League players from Africa.

Topping the list is Chelsea's Didier Drogba, ahead of other notable Africans such as Yaya Toure, Yakubu, Nwanko Kanu and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Delving deeper into the statistics it is clear to see why Drogba tops the list. The Chelsea striker has scored more goals in the Premier League than any other African (103) and made more assists (55).
