Premier League: Top 5 deadliest goalscoring records (1)

Published Add your comment

Football News

During its illustrious 22-year history, the Premier League has certainly not failed to produce it's fair share of excitement and entertainment.

In that time, there have been a multitude of thrills, spills and captivating action that eventually saw the English top-flight become arguably the most revered football league on the entire planet.

Of course with any football team, league or organisation, it is goals that most-commonly make the headlines.

And indeed if we were to delve into the statistics of some of the many goals scored in the Premier League over the decades, we are sure we would be able to produce one or two results that may cause widespread surprise.

Continuing our theme of presenting goalscoring stats this week, here - using the information from researched and presented by the fine folks over at Opta Joe - we look at the five players with the best and most deadly minutes/goal ratio with a single club in Premier League history (to be eligible for inclusion, that player must have scored AT LEAST 30 goals for that club).

By that they don't necessarily mean a player who has spent his whole Premier League career at one club, rather that he achieved that record with a single team...

Take a look at the list and see what you think.

Are these the names and clubs you expected to see? Who did you think would feature at the no.1 spot?

Perhaps there are some players or teams omitted from the list that you thought would be up there?
