If there was a ball and there was a goal, nothing could stop Alan Shearer.

Not defenders, not distance, not great goalkeepers nor even the laws of physics sometimes. That was why he scored a record 260 of them in the Premier League.

The call of home to play for his boyhood club Newcastle United made him a Geordie legend, but meant he lifted the Premier League Trophy just once.

Some are scorers of great goals, some great scorers of goals. Shearer was both. He was the ultimate centre-forward, scoring from all angles, with his left foot, with his right foot and with his head and scoring with pace, power and technique.

“He’s a superb team player and an inspirational captain,” said Bobby Robson, his inspirational manager at Newcastle. “As a player he is up there with the very best.

Pace, power and grace. Henry gave Premier League defenders nightmares for eight seasons.

Converted by Arsene Wenger from a winger to striker, he redefined forward play, starting on the left, but proving just as deadly closer to goal.

He scored over 20 Premier League goals five seasons running, claiming four Golden Boots, with some outrageous strikes.

Not content with just scoring he provided 74 assists, including a record 20 in 2002/03, and he won two Player of the Season awards.

“It was embarrassing for the defenders,” reflected Wenger. “He just scored when he wanted.”

:black_small_square: Nationality: :fr: French

:black_small_square: Position: Forward

:red_circle: Former Manchester United captain Eric Cantona was a catalyst for Manchester United’s dominance of the Premier League in the 1990s after his shock move from defending champions Leeds United early in the competition’s inaugural 1992/93 campaign.

Cantona helped United to end their 26-year title drought that year, and they were Premier League champions four times in five seasons at Old Trafford before his retirement in May 1997.

The Frenchman inspired his team with his approach and his skill that brought plenty of magic moments, such as his sublime lob versus Sunderland in December 1996.

:red_circle: Roy Keane was the fierce heartbeat of Manchester United’s midfield and their domination of the Premier League in the 1990s.

The tough-tackling Irishman joined from Nottingham Forest for a British-record fee in 1993 and was a leader in the United side, before becoming club captain in 1997.

His energy and fighting spirit inspired his team-mates to seven titles during his time at the club.
