#3 Alan Shearer
A list of the iconic Premier League players has to include the leading all-time scorer of the Premier League with 260 goals. Shearer was deadly in front of goal and racked up his legendary tally at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.
His record will surely remain safe with the next highest player being Wayne Rooney with 208 goals. His club honours include a Premier League title with Blackburn in 1994-95 where he also won the player of the season. It's impossible to think of Newcastle without also thinking of Alan Shearer and in 2000 he was given honorary freedom of the city.Published 24 Nov 2018, 20:21 IST
