There are plenty of hard-working studs in the English Premier League, so we honour some who didn't make the list.

Andi Weimann—like everyone else—was not blessed with the insane set of skills Lionel Messi was.
However, unlike many, the Austrian striker makes up for it by pouring his blood, sweat and tears into each and every game he plays, getting by on enthusiasm and merit.
He's an 18-yard box finisher, a pure striker, but he does his stint dropping deep and plays without fuss in a wide position if Paul Lambert asks him to.

Jonathan Walters rarely gets a game in the central striking position he enamours due to the large amount of strikers at Stoke City.
Despite being an effective target man who's very capable of scoring goals, he doesn't complain about the fact that Tony Pulis also has Michael Owen, Kenwyne Jones, Peter Crouch and Cameron Jerome to choose from.
He's carved out his own role in the team as a wider player who can also be used as an outlet and works very hard to ensure he stays in the starting XI. Now, if he could start scoring penalties...

Jason Roberts has always been a hard worker. He's a big burly target man, but unlike the usual breed never blows hot and cold.
He has sloped off due to age, not work ethic, and continues to work the channels and give defenders a true physical examination better than any other.
He's exceptional at finding a mismatch in the defence so he can go and dominate.

Jamie Mackie is just happy to be an English Premier League player.
That means when he starts—even when out of position—he's happy, and when he's on the bench he's chomping at the bit to get on.
He's the kind of player that doesn't give you a second on the ball, and he's so committed in his dribbling and tackling that he makes his own luck at times.

Is there a player in world football who runs as hard and works as diligently as Carlos Tevez?
When he's on the pitch, he is 100 percent focused on the ball. He'll chase, harry and lead from the front, forcing mistakes and turnovers so his team can prosper.
There's a reason he's beloved by every single fanbase he's represented.
