Ruud van Nistelrooy
Games to reach 50 goals: 68
Van Nistelrooy was perhaps the ultimate Premier League poacher during his time with Manchester United - his all-round game may not have been great but he certainly had a nose for goal.
Sadly his time in the Premier League was perhaps a little shorter than it could have been.
Where perhaps he could have been one of the league's greatest ever scorers, the Dutchman would only score another 45 goals in 82 games before departing to join Real Madrid.
