Nicolas Anelka became only the ninth player in Premier League history to score for SIX different English top-flight clubs, after the Frenchman netted a memorable brace in West Bromwich Albion's 3-3 draw with West Ham United on Saturday.

The 34-year-old striker scored twice in the space of five minutes, to give the manager-less Baggies a 2-1 half-time lead at Upton Park, cancelling out Joe Cole's early opener.

Anelka's first came after latching on to Chris Brunt's through ball. He proceeded to outmuscle and outpace defender Joey O'Brien before cooly slotting past Hammers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

Moments later, Carlton Cole headed a West Brom corner off the goal-line, but only into the path of Anelka, who prodded home to put the visitors ahead at the break.

Jaaskelainen denied the journeyman a hat-trick early in the second half, but the landmark brace still capped an impressive return to action, following a two-month lay-off.

Anelka has now scored Premier League goals for Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Bolton, Chelsea and West Brom - but can you name the other EIGHT players that have emulated that feat?

Click through the tabs - above or below - to find out the answer, and leave a prediction in the comment box provided with who you think could become the 10th player to achieve it!
