Paul Pogba's penalty miss against Wolves on Monday night brought the issue of spot-kicks and nerves of steel into sharp focus.
Which players have been the most successful from the spot in top-flight history?
All-time leading Premier League goal-scorer Alan Shearer is at the top of the pile with 56, while Chelsea legend and current manager Frank Lampard occupied second place. Lampard's ex-England colleague and Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard converted coolly from the spot 32 times in his EPL career.
Sergio Agüero, Mark Noble and Leighton Baines are the three active Premier League players to make the top ten, and legends Thierry Henry and Wayne Rooney also figure.
South African legend Benni McCarthy notched 13 successful spot-kicks during his top-flight stay in England, and African and Ivorian legend Yaya Toure was successful with 11 penalties from 11 attempts, making him the deadliest player from the spot in Premier League history (out of players to take 10 or more penalties).
