Top 5 Players to Reach 100 Goals in Premier League History

The Premier League is in its 30th season. There have been some outstanding scorers over its history. Mohamed Salah of Liverpool is the newest member of the exclusive 100-goal club. Salah joined the club when he scored the first goal in Liverpool's 3-0 triumph over Leeds United. Among others, the Egypt international has now joined Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, and Didier Drogba in the process. Salah has reached the milestone in only five seasons, which is quite remarkable. As a result, he is one of the fastest players in Premier League history to reach the century mark. On that point, here are the five players who have scored 100 league goals in the Premier League era the quickest.

5. Salah Mohamed

Mohamed Salah, an Egyptian international, is the newest member of Club 100. On Sunday, September 12th, 2021, he surpassed the milestone in his team's 3-0 win over Aston Villa. The Liverpool striker needed 162 league games to reach the top flight, and he became the league's 30th player to achieve 100 goals since its rebranding in 1992. Salah has played in the Premier League for two teams: Chelsea, where he scored two goals, and Liverpool, where he has 100 goals.

4. Thierry Henry .

The Frenchman is regarded as one of Arsenal's greatest players. He is the club's all-time goalscorer. In 160 games, Henry scored 100 goals, making him the fourth-fastest player to do it. In his Premier League career, Henry scored 175 goals in 258 games. In the early 2000s, the striker helped Arsenal dominate the Premier League by playing a key role in their success. With the Gunners, he won the league twice, in 2002 and 2004. In 2015, Henry announced his retirement from football as a player.

3. Sergio Aguero

The Argentine striker holds the record for most goals scored by a non-British player in Premier League history. In 275 outings, he has 184 goals. For Manchester City, it took only 147 games for the striker to reach 100 goals in the league. He is also their all-time leading goalscorer, having assisted them in dominating the league and domestic competitions throughout the previous decade. Sergio Aguero led the Cityzens to five league titles and 55 assists in his five years with the club.

2. Harry Kane

Kane made a habit of bursting past defenders and scoring goals with either foot as Spurs enjoyed their best period since the 1980s. His game may be more considered and economical these days. With a penalty at Anfield in February 2018, the England captain completed his century and has barely slowed down since.

1. Alan Shearer

Shearer remains the only player to score more than 30 goals in three league seasons, which he did at Blackburn in the mid-1990s. He is widely regarded as the greatest goalscorer in Premier League history and a man whose achievements many believe will stand the test of time. In just 124 games, he scored his 100th goal, honoring the occasion with the game-winning goal against Tottenham in December 1995. Shearer moved to Newcastle the next summer and went on to become the club's all-time leading scorer before retiring in 2006.
