Jamie Carragher has revealed his top 10 strikers in the Premier League in light of the news that Sergio Aguero will be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season.
The Argentine has graced the top-tier of English football for a decade now and has 257 goals at the Etihad during his trophy-laden career.
But he is not the only frontman to unleash havoc on defences in the Premier League.
This country has seen a host of strikers who have delighted and devastated fans over the years.
However, who are the best 10 to grace these shores? Carragher has voiced his opinion.
Scraping into his list is Harry Kane, who looks on course to break Alan Shearer’s record as top scorer in the Premier League – if he avoids anymore injuries.
His goal against Poland in the most recent World Cup qualifier also took his tally for England to 34, with Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 in his sights.
Perhaps unfairly, Carragher has placed Kane 10th because of his lack of trophies – a situation that could be rectified by the end of the season when Tottenham take on City in the Carabao Cup this month.
Another big call was the placement of Mohamed Salah over Luis Suarez – two fine forwards who have lit up Anfield in their own right.
Suarez’s 31 goals in 33 appearances in 2014 saw him placed eighth – simply because, that despite his mindblowing goal record, it did not clinch Liverpool the Premier League title, a slightly unjust position considering if the Reds had a competent defence that trophy would have been theirs.
Salah is placed sixth as a result, his goals undoubtedly a factor in Jurgen Klopp’s grand success over the past few seasons which have seen the Champions League and Premier League trophies lifted.
Entering the top five are Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba and Shearer – but who is battling it out for the position on No. 1?
Carragher told the Telegraph : “There is only one winner in this list. It amazes me that anyone would ever debate it. It is not even close.
“Thierry Henry is not only the greatest Premier League striker, he is the greatest Premier League player.”
The Sky Sports pundit is not alone in his thinking with many agreeing with him that the Arsenal legend commands such a spot.
Aguero can feel slightly aggrieved for finishing as runner-up but his time in the Premier League will never be forgotten – not least because he gave fans the most iconic moment in its history – just the mere mention of his name will recall memories of that goal against QPR.
With a fifth Premier League title on the way, the Argentine will be commemorated by City with a statue and the embodiment of the club’s most successful era.
