Hardest Record To Break in England That Henry, Aguero And Drogba Failed To Break

Breaking a record in the English Premier League is one most difficult things to achieve for a player. Widely regarded as the most famous and competitive football league in the world, English Premier League has seen some incredible goal scorers.

There have been incredible moments, goals, saves, and wins since 1992. League supporters have seen some unbelievable records being kept since then some of which may take years to break. Due to the top players who are always playing in the league whether goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, wingers, and strikers the league has always had some remarkable moments.

Players like Sergio Aguero, Thierry Henry, and Didier Drogba are regarded as some of the most complete strikers in the Premier League. These stars enjoyed huge success in the Premier League and they enjoyed a great success having all won the Premier League title and golden boot.

They all had a great career in their respective Premier League club with Henry at Arsenal, Drogba at Chelsea, and Sergio Aguero at Manchester City. They were incredible goal scorers but there is one record that failed to beat.

The three great strikers never managed to beat Alan Shearer's record of most goals in the Premier League history. The former Southampton and Newcastle United star scored a whopping 260 in the Premier League the most by any player in the league.

Shearer played for three teams in England including Southampton, Blackburn Rovers, and Newcastle United. Since he retired in 2006 no player has ever broken his record no matter how prolific a striker was.

Aguero scored 184 goals the fourth-highest scorer, Henry scored 175 the 6th highest top scorer while Drogba only scored 104 Premier League goals. This record by Shearer has lasted for almost two decades and it could last longer as there is no striker of the current generation who can break it
