The Premier League is regarded as the most competitive championship in the world of football. There have been so many great goalscorers over the years for clubs both big and small. We’re going to take a look at the 30 greatest strikers in the history of the division.
We’re sticking to out-and-out strikers so there is no room for the likes of Christiano Ronaldo or Mohammed Salah. Some of our picks might cause controversy. Who do you think we’ve missed out on?
30. Emmanuel Adebayor
Before he lost interest at every club he basically played for, Adebayor would have at least one season where he’d show off his insane talent. The Togo frontman scored 24 league goals for the Gunners in 2007/08. He would also become the first player to score hat-tricks home and away against the same team in the same campaign, versus Derby.
Then came the switch to Manchester City and that famous knee-slide in front of the Arsenal fans. Adebayor hit 14 goals in his first season at the Etihad, and 17 in his debut campaign for Spurs, but his form faded before a one-goal spell at Crystal Palace in 2015/16.
