Kane, Henry, Shearer: Who has the best mins-per-goal record among PL's top 20 scorers?

On Monday evening, Harry Kane surpassed Thierry Henry in the all-time Premier League scoring chart.

The Tottenham Hotspur superstar scored goals number 175 and 176 in his team’s 5-0 demolition of Everton.

Kane is now just one behind Frank Lampard and given that he’s still just 28 years of age, the England captain stands a very good chance of breaking Alan Shearer‘s record of 260 goals.

But where does Kane rank among the rest of the Premier League’s greatest ever scorers in terms of minutes-per-goal?

Well, as you probably guessed, very well indeed.

In fact, only two players who’re part of the top 20 goal-getters in Premier League history have a superior record over on Transfermarkt.

Who’re they? Let’s find out…

20. Steven Gerrard

121 goals | 340 mins-per-goal

19. Frank Lampard

177 goals | 276 mins-per-goal

18. Nicolas Anelka

126 goals | 224 mins-per-goal

17. Dwight Yorke

123 goals | 223 mins-per-goal

16. Teddy Sheringham

146 goals | 219 mins-per-goal

15. Jermain Defoe

163 goals | 200 mins-per-goal

14. Robbie Keane

125 goals | 196 mins-per-goal

13. Wayne Rooney

208 goals | 183 mins-per-goal

12. Les Ferdinand

149 goals | 175 mins-per-goal

11. Robbie Fowler

162 goals | 173 mins-per-goal

10. Romelu Lukaku

118 goals | 172 mins-per-goal

9. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

127 goals | 170 mins-per-goal

8. Andy Cole

187 goals | 169 mins-per-goal

7. Jamie Vardy

128 goals | 168 mins-per-goal

6. Michael Owen

150 goals | 153 mins-per-goal

5. Alan Shearer

260 goals | 147 mins-per-goal

4. Robin van Persie

144 goals | 140 mins-per-goal

3. Harry Kane

176 goals | 128 mins-per-goal

2. Thierry Henry

175 goals | 122 mins-per-goal

1. Sergio Aguero

184 goals | 108 mins-per-goal

Yeah, Aguero‘s record isn’t being broken anytime soon, an absolute freak of nature when it comes to the sweet art of goalscoring.

The Argentine and Henry are the only two players who sit ahead of Kane at the time of writing, with Shearer having to make do with fifth-place behind Van Persie.

Rooney – who is the Premier League’s second-highest scorer – is surprisingly in 13th position, behind the likes of Lukaku and Vardy.

Gerrard and Lampard occupy the two places at the bottom of the list, although that’s to be expected given that they’re the only two midfielders on show.

The fact they even feature in the top 20 at all is mind-boggling…
