It is 15 years since he retired from professional football, but former English international forward Alan Shearer still holds the record for scoring the most goals in Premier League history.
The former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers star scored 260 goals in 441 Premier League matches in his 18-year career. Aside from being the highest goal scorer ever, he also has the common record of scoring the most goals in a single Premier League match (five).
Shearer is followed by former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney, who scored 208 goals in 491 games for Everton and the Red Devils. Rooney’s predecessor at Manchester United Andy Cole is the third biggest goal scorer with 187 goals in 414 games.
Argentina’s international forward Sergio Aguero, who left Manchester after 10 seasons in 2021 and joined Barcelona, is the fourth highest goal scorer ever with 184 goals in 275 games for Cityzens. Aguero also holds the record for scoring the most Premier League goals for a single club.
