It is perhaps one of the hottest debates in the Premier League – who is the best striker?

The top teams spend lavishly in the hope of landing a proven goal scorer with a knack for finding the back of the net, willing to spend up to, oh I don’t know, £50 million in order to guarantee themselves a regular supply of goals. It doesn’t exactly work like that though, does it now Chelsea....

While Fernando Torres has struggled, there are plenty of players still going who appear in the top ten. In fact it is Manchester City's Sergio Aguero who tops the list having averaged one goal every 111 minutes or so since arriving in the Premier League, one of which being perhaps the most dramatic in English football history.

Premier League icons are also well represented in Alan Shearer, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry, who can count themselves as among the highest scorers in the legue's history as well as the most clinical.

In the modern game where winning is everything and second place is nowehere, there can be no more precious commodity than goals and goalscorers.

Luckily, Opta have waded into the debate and come up with a list of the top ten strikers who stastically speaking, are the most deadly finishers the Premier League has ever seen.

The minimum requirement to make the list is 15 games - so check out the top ten and let us know who you rate as your best ever Premier League striker by leaving a comment below. Enjoy.
