El Pistolero was one of the best strikers in the Premier League

El Pistolero was one of the best strikers in the Premier League

The English Premier League rightly enjoys its status as one of the world's best football leagues.

Apart from the intense competition it offers, the English top-tier has a rich and bountiful history of players who have served it. Since its inception in 1992, the Premier League has been a home to some of the greatest strikers who have graced the beautiful game.

Name any kind of striker you want; a target man, a fierce goal-poacher or an exquisite finisher, the Premier League has seen them all.

However, you might find some noteworthy exclusions while reading this list. That is because statistics have given a slight edge to some players. Also, with the recent quality of strikers the Premier League has seen, the all-time list may change sooner rather than later.

Honourable Mentions

Robbie Fowler: The Englishman is a legend no doubt but falls behind many due to the lack of titles.

Luis Suarez: If it wasn't for his short stay in England coupled with no titles, with lethal goals per game average of 0.63, the Uruguayan deserved to make this list.

Dwight Yorke: Amongst the Man United strikers listed in here, Yorkey is the least destructive of all, with just a 0.33 goals-per-game ratio.

#10 Sergio Aguero

Sergio Aguero will definitely retire as a Premier League immortal

Clubs: Manchester City

EPL Apps: 189

Goals: 130

Assists: 32

League titles: 2

Individual accolades: 1 x Golden Boot

Sergio Aguero's exclusion will definitely make no sense, given his contribution to Manchester City's meteoric rise to becoming one of the best clubs in the world.

The Argentinian has served as the arrowhead of the attack alongside David Silva and Yaya Toure, cementing his place amongst Premier League legends. Being a nimble-footed striker with a hefty built, Aguero is adept at terrorizing the defenders with fierce shooting abilities.

Of course, he has all the traits to look for in a top-notch hitman, but it's his consistency that makes him a player you have to have on your team. In spite of his fair share of injuries, Aguero has already crossed the 20-goal mark in 4 seasons and looks intent on repeating the feat this year.

Should he continue his exploits, why, Sergio Aguero might as well win the crown as the Premier League's best striker of all time.
