Published 4 Comments

Becoming a Premier League striking legend is no mean feat and there are only a select few that have achieved such status in the past – but who of the current crop will join this exclusive group?

Men like Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Eric Cantona and Didier Drogba terrorised defences for years, scoring bags of goals and just generally being magnificent.

They have lifted numerous trophies, broken scoring records, been decisive at crucial moments and have garnered a fan followings that would see them do no wrong.

It is tough to achieve such status but there are a few names popping up on scoresheets in the Premier League at the moment that have the potential to one day, when they finally leave the league, be held in similar regard.
