No footballer can escape the dejected feeling when they score an own goal. Often there is simply nothing they can do, it’s happened before a player has had time to react.

Defenders have it hardest. They have to tread a fine line, making sure they are in the right position but trying not to get in the way.

When he put the ball past Jack Butland against Tottenham Hotspur, Ryan Shawcross’s face said it all. There was little he could do, but it didn’t make him feel any better.

The Stoke City centre-back has now scored six own goals in the Premier League, taking him to joint-third place in the all-time stakes.

But who else joins him on a list that no professional wants to make. Can you name the players with the most own goals in Premier League history?

In our quiz below, you’ve got seven minutes to recall 17 players who far too often netted at the wrong end.

You’ll have to disabled AdBlocker to play, but let us know your score by tweeting us at @FB_Whispers. Good luck!
