Netgenz - Netizen buzz Sport | The Premier League is one of the most intense competitions in European football. The Premier League title itself has a lineup of world-class clubs, such as Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, to Manchester United.
Scoring goals in the Premier League title is a certain pride for a footballer. In its history, there are many English footballers with the most goals scored in this event.
Here are 5 English Players with the Most Goals in Premier League History
1. Alan Shearer (260 goals)
Alan Shearer's name became one of the great footballers of the late '20s and early 21s. He played for Newcastle United from 1996 to 2006. He had played for Blackburn and Southampton before joining Newcastle United.
Shearer has scored 260 goals while actively playing in the Premier League. With that, he became the footballer with the most goals in the history of the Premier League so far.
2. Wayne Rooney (208 goals)
Manchester United fans are certainly no stranger to the figure of Wayne Rooney. In addition to defending the Red Devils, the player from England had also defended Everton and Derby County. In the Premier League title, Rooney managed to record 208 goals in the 3 clubs he defended.
Generally, he made Premier League goals when defending Manchester United. Currently, Rooney is found to be the coach of Championship club, Derby County. Many believe that in the period that Rooney wants to return to Manchester United as manager.
3. Joe Cole (187 goals)
Joe Cole has successfully become one of the riskiest central strikers since playing for Chelsea from mid-2003 to 2010. He also played for Liverpool from 2012 to 2013. He has scored 187 goals throughout his career in the Premier League.
Thus, he became the riskiest central striker in the history of the Premier League. Cole chose to retire at the club from the United States, TB Rowdies, in 2018.
4. Frank Lampard (177 goals)
Frank Lampard is a Chelsea legend who is currently the coach of Everton. Throughout his career as a footballer, Lampard has become the most productive midfielder in terms of scoring goals. At least there have been 177 goals recorded by him in the Premier League title.
Unfortunately, Lampard has not been able to show his ability when he has handled Chelsea since 2019 as a coach. He couldn't help but be expelled in early 2021 because of Chelsea's poor performance in the Premier League.
5. Harry Kane (176 goals)
One of the active players on this list is Harry Kane. Although not as sharp as the 2021/2022 season, Kane's performance can be said to be still good. In fact, he managed to add some of his goals to 176 goals in the Premier League.
Kane has the potential to equalize Alan Shearer's goal achievement considering he is currently only 28 years old. Kane himself has reportedly been on the transfer radar for Manchester City and Manchester United in recent months. If he joins one of these clubs, Kane is believed to be able to score more goals again.
Alan Shearer is still the player from England with the most goals in Premier League history. However, Harry Kane really has the potential to exceed Shearer's record. Can Harry Kane do it anytime soon?
