The Premier League has played host to some of the best Argentine players to grace the game and their impact on the top flight has varied from title winning campaigns to being saviours in their club's darkest hour.

In honour of the Argentine imprint, here is our all-time Premier League starting XI of the very best to ply their trade on English shores.

1. Julian Speroni (Goalkeeper)

​While he has not made an appearance for Argentina's national team, dependable goalkeeper Speroni walks into the goalkeeping position, with Manchester City's Willy Cabellero being the only competition for the position.

Speroni has been at Crystal Palace since 2004 and since their return to the Premier League in 2013/14, the 37-year-old has produced moments of magic between the posts to safeguard the Eagles' position in the league. A great servant for Palace.

2. Pablo Zabaleta (Right Back)

​Zabaleta was a slow starter to life in the Premier League when he joined Manchester City in 2008, but over time has morphed into one of the most accomplished and consistent full backs in the top flight's recent history.

He has played a vital role in each of the Sky Blues' league title triumphs thus far and no one at City works harder than the 31-year-old. He sows up his position at right back.

3. Martin Demichelis (Centre Back)

Perhaps ​a debatable inclusion, but veteran Demichelis has showed that he can silence those who criticised the lack of pace or proneness to mistakes he showed early in his Manchester City career.

He got better and better, proving instrumental to a City squad that won the Premier League in 2013/14, using his positional awareness and experience to shore up the defence next to Vincent Kompany.

Based on such a drastic improvement, he has earned a spot in this starting XI.

4. Fabricio Coloccini (Centre Back)

Coloccini has previously shown the quality that convinced Newcastle to sign him for £10m back in 2008. His consistency has been key and the heartbeat of a Magpies side that in the past seven years has undergone a variety of fates ranging from European football to relegation.

2014/15 saw his qualities abruptly deteriorate as Newcastle slipped towards the relegation zone, only to survive demotion on the final day of the season, but based on the quality he has previously shown, a place in this starting XI is warranted.

5. Gabriel Heinze (Left Back)

Gabriel Heinze enjoyed a brilliant first season for Manchester United in the 2004/05 season, establishing himself as the Red Devils' first choice left-back and was even voted the club's player of the year after becoming a fan favourite.

Though injury curtailed his progress thereafter, on his day Heinze was unbeatable on the left hand side of defence.

6. Javier Mascherano (Defensive Midfield)

Now known mainly as a central defender, Mascherano was one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League during spells at West Ham and Liverpool.

The 31-year-old was the rock in front of the back four that few teams could conquer and he helped Liverpool challenge for the Premier League title in the 2008/09 season.

Liverpool haven't been the same since Mascherano left the club.

7. Andres D'Alessandro (Central Midfield)

​He may have only played at Portsmouth for a little under five months in the 2005/06 season, but D'Alessandro's impact for the club is greater than the time span.

Playing in a Pompey side that miraculously escaped relegation that year, the former Real Zaragoza man wowed the league with immense dribbling, technical ability and creativity and assisted a few goals as the club escaped the drop.

8. Jonas Gutierrez (Left Wing)

​The left wing position was a tough one to call, considering that Angel Di Maria played for Manchester United, but the position must go to Jonas Gutierrez.

Before being released by Newcastle at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, the 31-year-old was a great servant to the club who, along with compatriot Fabricio Coloccini, formed the spine of a Magpies side that has ebbed and flowed over the years.

His strike against West Ham, which saved Newcastle from relegation on the final day, was perhaps his finest hour.

9. Maxi Rodriguez (Right Wing)

Maxi Rodriguez, arguably, doesn't get enough props for his time at Liverpool. The talented winger was arguably one of the Reds' best signings in years and he scored 17 goals in 72 appearances overall, notching up the League Cup in 2012 for his efforts.

He provided that extra bit of quality that got Liverpool over the line on many occasions and worked hard for the cause whenever he was on the pitch. A certified inclusion in this starting XI.

10. Carlos Tevez (Striker)

One of the most controversial but potent players to ever grace the Premier League, Tevez could back up his often frustrating nature with goals.

Whether it was saving West Ham from relegation in 2005/06, forging a destructive attacking trio with Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United or moving to the blue half of the city, Tevez's career in England was a rollercoaster.

But with 84 goals in the league, his actions always spoke much louder than his words.

11. Sergio Aguero (Striker)

A living legend in the Premier League, Aguero walks into this starting XI of Argentinians based on his phenomenal goalscoring record and the moment that will stay with Premier League fans forever - THAT goal against QPR.

The 27-year-old is arguably one of the most complete forwards to ever play in the top flight and continues to strike week in, week out for the Sky Blues, showing why he is probably the best Argentine to ever play in the Premier League.
