They've undoubtedly all been described as 'absolute muppets' at some point in their career (some more than others), so it seemed only right to match up a few players to their puppet lookalike.

We present to you 20 Premier League football figures*, together with their Muppet doppelgängers. Next time you're screaming at them in frustration, perhaps imagine it's one of Jim Henson's creations instead and it might cheer you up a bit...

Do you have any further suggestions for Premier League muppet lookalikes? Let us know in the comments below.

*Mick McCarthy was too good not to put in
