Fri 18 October 2019 | 7:37

2019 heads towards a close but who stood out as top 10 players in the division from the past 10 years?

Below is a look at the list of the top 10 players in any position:

1. Sergio Aguero

Club: Manchester City

Years active: 2011-present

The scorer of a record 172 Premier League goals across the last 10 years, the Argentinean is certainly responsible for the most dramatic moment of the era as he clinched the first of four league titles for Manchester City in the decade.

2. David Silva

Club: Manchester City

Years active: 2010-present

As one of the most graceful players ever to play in the division, the Spaniard will leave City at the end of the season having already picked up four league titles and a place in Premier League folklore.

3. Vincent Kompany

Club: Manchester City

Years active: 2010-2019

Manchester City's inspirational leader got his hands on the Premier League trophy four times in the 2010s and scored that memorable strike against Leicester that clinched glory last season.

4. Eden Hazard

Club: Chelsea

Years active: 2012-2019

At his best, it was almost impossible to stop the Belgian during his seven years in the Premier League, which he won twice as he made the PFA Team of the Year four times.

5. David de Gea

Club: Manchester United

Years active: 2011-present

After initial struggles as a young goalkeeper, there have been times when it has seemed to be impossible for attackers to beat Manchester United's Spanish last line of defense, who helped his side to the title in 2012/13.

6. Yaya Toure

Club: Manchester City

Years active: 2010-2018

The relentless driving force in the Manchester City midfield, the Ivorian's 20 goals in 2013/14 were one of the key reasons City beat Liverpool to the title that season, his second of three successes with the club.

7. Harry Kane

Clubs: Tottenham, Norwich (loan)

Years active: 2012-present

Tottenham's reliable goal-getter can boast a staggering record of 130 Premier League strikes in 185 games, earning him two Golden Boots and four spots in the PFA Team of the Year.

8. James Milner

Clubs: Aston Villa, Manchester City, Liverpool

Years active: 2010-present

The Yorkshireman was named in the PFA Team of the Year for the 2009/10 season, and he's still going strong 10 years later. He was Young Player of the Year in the same season, and after two league titles with Manchester City, he's going for another one with Liverpool.

9. Gareth Bale

Clubs: Tottenham

Years active: 2010-2013

The PFA Player of the Year in 2010/11 and 2012/13 - adding the Young Player award in the latter - the Welshman was an unstoppable Premier League force for a while, earning him a move to Real Madrid.

10. Luis Suarez

Clubs: Liverpool

Years active: 2011-2014

Although the Uruguayan wasn't in the Premier League for long, the impact he made over two-and-a-half years with Liverpool certainly was a lasting one, and he was top scorer and PFA Player of the Year in 2013/14.

Raheem Sterling can also be added to the list as he has won the last two Premier League titles with Manchester City and Mohamed Salah who

set a new 38-game Premier League season record of 32 goals in 2017/18.
