The English Premier League is the epitome of English football. It consists of 20 teams that battle it out for the title with some clubs fighting to stay out of the relegation zone. The league has seen incredible players come through its ranks and it continues to draw global superstars to its shores.

Let’s take a look at the top 6 goal scorers:

At number 6 – Frank Lampard

A phenomenal midfielder who had a knack for scoring goals. The Englishman, Frank Lampard, scored 177 goals in 609 appearances. He spent time at West Ham United and Manchester City, but he is most famous for his long and successful career at Chelsea Football Club. Lampard has taken on club management roles and was appointed as caretaker manager for Chelsea in 2023.

At number 5 – Sergio Agüero

The mighty Argentinian, Sergio Agüero, made 275 Premier League appearances and scored a mammoth 184 goals, quite a feat in such a few appearances. He played for Manchester City throughout his career. We will never know how many goals he would have scored had he continued to play in the English Premier League.

At number 4 – Andrew Cole

With 414 Premier League appearances, Andy Cole would go on to score 187 goals. He was a player who moved around clubs. He played for Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, Manchester United, Fulham, Manchester City, Portsmouth and finally Sunderland. He was widely known for his time spent at Manchester United where he enjoyed a long and successful run, winning 5 Premier League titles in his 6 years.

At number 3 – Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney began his career at Everton as one of the youngest debutants for the club. He later moved to Manchester United where he spent most of his career before moving back to Everton for his final season of the Premier League. He would break the 200-goal barrier with a Premier League career total of 208 goals in 491 appearances. He might not have been the most forward thinking or disciplined player on the field, but his presence was impactful and his play sensational. Rooney is not the manager of Birmingham City.

At number 2 – Harry Kane

The current captain of the English national team, Harry Kane is possibly one of the greatest footballers of his generation. Born in England in 1993 he amassed 213 Premier League goals in 320 appearances, an amazing achievement. He ended his 19-year-long career with Tottenham Hotspurs in late 2023. Who knows whether Kane will return to the Premier League and go down in history as the record holder.

At number 1 – Alan Shearer

English-born and arguably one of the most prolific forwards of all time Alan Shearer has made a definitive mark in the history of the Premier League. Starting his career at Blackburn Rovers in 1992 and later moving to Newcastle in 1996, he scored a formidable 260 Premier League goals in 441 appearances. A record yet to be broken.

Final Word

With as many thrilling twists and turns as the Australian sports betting offers, the English Premier League is one of the most exciting tournaments in club football. Records continue to tumble, but can someone take over Alan Shearer’s record and put their name in the history books?
