The debate surrounding the greatest strikers in Premier League history rages on but you cannot argue with the ‘goals scored’ statistic. On paper, Alan Shearer is the most prolific forward with an incredible 260 Premier League goals during an illustrious career.

However, you can make a solid argument for the likes of Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney and even Sergio Aguero as better players than the Newcastle legend. It all depends on how you measure success – whether that’s trophies, total goals or goals per minute.

Here at 888sport, we’ve come up with a series of football quizzes to keep fans entertained as we wait for the 2020 sport calendar to resume. Can you name the top 20 goal scorers in Premier League history? Scroll down and put your knowledge to the test!

We’ve already started you off with a few players who feature on this list – but it’s only going to get tougher. Meanwhile, you can follow the latest football updates and bet on English Premier League games with 888sport throughout the 2019/20 campaign and beyond.
