I know we are looking at the Premier League Highest Goal Scorers all-time top, but I’m going to limit this article to only those players who have scored up to 100 goals.

Premier League Highest Goal Scorers

Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, there have been some truly remarkable goal scorers who have left an indelible mark on English football.

These players, known as the Premier League 100 Club, have achieved the incredible feat of scoring 100 or more goals in the competition.

Today, we are here to celebrate their remarkable achievements and delve into the fascinating statistics surrounding their goal-scoring prowess.

Alan Shearer: A Record-Breaking Icon

When it comes to the Premier League, there is one name that stands head and shoulders above the rest – Alan Shearer.

The legendary striker, who played for Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers, not only became the first player to reach the 100-goal milestone, but also holds the record for the most goals scored in the Premier League with an astonishing 260.

What’s even more impressive is that Shearer accomplished this feat in just 124 appearances, making him the fastest player to reach the 100-goal mark.

His clinical finishing, aerial prowess, and sheer determination made him a force to be reckoned with on the pitch, and his record may stand the test of time.

Achieving Milestones: Youngest, Non-English, African, South American, and Asian Players

While Shearer’s records may seem unbeatable, there have been other players who have left their mark on the Premier League’s illustrious history.

Michael Owen became the youngest player to reach the 100-goal milestone at just 23 years and 133 days.

Dwight Yorke became the first non-English player to score 100 goals, while Didier Drogba and Sergio Agüero became the first African and South American players, respectively, to achieve this feat.

More recently, Son Heung-min made history as the first Asian player to join the Premier League 100 Club. His achievement on 8 April 2023 added another chapter to the league’s rich tapestry of goal-scoring greatness.

Unique Accomplishments: No Penalties Required

Scoring 100 goals in the Premier League is no easy feat, but some players managed to do it without converting a single penalty.

Sadio Mané, Peter Crouch, Emile Heskey, Les Ferdinand, Andy Cole, and Ryan Giggs achieved this incredible milestone through their open-play prowess and skill.

Their contributions to the game will forever be remembered.
