Premier League goals: Higher or lower?

The Premier League has witnessed some of the greatest goal scorers in world football from Alan Shearer to Thierry Henry to Cristiano Ronaldo. Alan Shearer is one of only two men to have scored over 200 Premier League goals, with Wayne Rooney having joined him earlier in the season when he scored against Manchester City.

With talented playmakers in the form of David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City possess a couple of strikers to watch out for this season, as Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus have helped the City squad storm the league. This form has led the Citizens to become the firm favourites with Betfair Premier League odds. The two South American strikers will be hoping that they can continue their form and lead the club to a third Premier League trophy.

Strikers Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku will be eagerly hoping that they can reach 100 Premier League goals by the end of the season, although they have both suffered from dips in form, damaging their hopes. Lukaku has scored 94 goals in the Premier League over the course of seven seasons, in which he has played for Chelsea, West Brom, Everton and now Manchester United. The Belgian striker has currently scored ten league goals for his new club and, assuming the club buy some creative players in January, that total is more than likely to improve.

With so many players hoping to reach milestones this season, we have created a quiz to test your knowledge on the number of goals both past and present Premier League players have scored.
