Top 10: Greatest strikers in Premier League history (1)

Published 7 Comments

Football News

We all have our own opinions when it comes to the greatest strikers of the Premier League era, but the fact is it's not an easy task to name a top ten - so many great goalscorers have plied their trade in England's top flight over the past 22 years.

But here at GMS towers, we've given it a go. This list does take statistics into consideration, but it's far from the be all and end all. They only reveal so much, after all, and can give a false representation of the player in question.

First of all, though, we must give an honourable mention to two players who everyone will expect to feature: Eric Cantona and Dennis Bergkamp.

They are undoubtedly two of the best players of the Premier League era but, in many ways, were much more than strikers, hence why Bergkamp only scored 87 goals with Arsenal and Cantona 70 with Manchester United.

Still, if you feel they deserved to be on this list, tell us who should have made way.
