De Rossi has an attacking streak in him, which is why he doesnt manmark opponents throughout a match, he is more of a box to box player.

Xavi is also a bit hard to mark because he plays deep, so you will need a defensive minded player spending half his time in the opponents half to mark him, which will leave holes in his own side of the pitch....

As for Messi, the main trick that works against him is forcing him to the outside, which means he cant use his left foot....Ashley Cole has done that quite well previously..
