10 Best Premier League Strikers Of All-Time Ranked And Rated

Literally hundreds of strikers have plied their trade in the Premier League since its inception in 1992/93. But which ones have been the best of the best?

The advent of the Premier League changed English football forever. The glossier, more commercial version that emerged, backed by Rupert Murdoch's Sky TV millions, meant that clubs in the new league could now compete with the likes of Italy and Spain in bringing the world's best to their shores.
