MAME DIOUF'S rapid pace makes him a nightmare for opposition defenders in the Premier League.

A versatile performer, who has featured up front, on the right and even at full-back, Diouf will argue that he is most at ease in a striking roleā€¦ and the stats back him up.

In the one campaign that he largely featured up top, he managed to notch 12 goals for the Potters, although his influence when deployed out wide shouldn't be overlooked.

You will struggle to find a more willing runner than the former Hannover 96 ace, who was linked with a move from Germany to the bet365 Stadium way before his eventual switch in the summer of 2014.

Starting his career with Molde in Norway, Manchester United soon caught wind of the talented performer and took him to Old Trafford in 2009.

However, he struggled to forge a breakthrough into their starting line-up and moved on to join Hannover two years later, for whom he went on to net 35 goals for in just 71 appearances.
