The English Premier League has undoubtedly hosted some of the world's greatest footballers, including many elite goalscorers. These prolific goalscorers find it easy to score no matter where and when they were playing.

Their goal-scoring abilities are not hampered in any way when playing away from their home stadiums.

In a football team, the bulk of the goal-scoring burden is placed on the shoulders of the strikers, while other players also chip in occasionally. The Premier League is no different, but the nature of away games makes it more difficult for many strikers to perform.

The voices of fans chanting songs are enough to put off even the most seasoned professionals at times.
