Andy Cole – 62 goals in 95 Premier League games – Click the arrow to see which player scored 66 in 95 – If there is one thing you can say about Andy Cole, it’s that he knows the route to goal. The former Newcastle and Man United hitman certainly proved that, hitting a hugely respectable 62 league goals in 95 games – including a stonking 34 in 40 for the Magpies in the 1993/94 season. 5 5 5 =4. Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez – 61 goals in their first 95 Premier League games – Click the arrow to see which player scored 62 in 95 – Sergio Aguero’s goal tally since arriving in England may be impressive, but – perhaps surprisingly – it is no more impressive than another South American star, Luis Suarez. The two had differing starts to life in the Premier League, with Aguero hitting the ground running, while Suarez initially struggled to regularly score. However, upon hitting 95 top flight games to pair’s scoring record is identical. 2. Ruud van Nistelrooy – 66 goals in 95 Premier League games – Click the arrow to see which player scored the most goals in his first 95 PL games – The modern poacher, Ruud van Nistelrooy is another player who made poking the ball in from yards out an art. The Dutchman was so good at it that he managed to find the net an incredible 66 times in his first 95 appearances for Man United. 48 league goals in his first two seasons was followed by another 20 in his third campaign. During his time at Old Trafford, Van Nistelrooy hit the 20 goal mark four times in five years. Sergio Aguero’s four-goal haul against Tottenham Hotspur has taken his Premier League total to 61 in just 95 games for Man City – a pretty impressive haul – but how does it measure up to the top flight’s greatest strikers in the PL era?We decided to take a look.

Thierry Henry scored 56 goals in his first 95 Premier League games – click the arrow above right to see which players have an even better record in their first 95 games (including Sergio Aguero) – Widely regarded as Arsenal’s finest-ever player by hoards of Gooners, the club’s record goalscorer initially struggled to find the net upon arriving at Highbury in 1999 – drawing a blank in his opening eight matches. Henry eventually finished his maiden season with 17 league goals, and went on to record 226 league goals for Arsenal. But his haul in those initial 95 Premier League games doesn’t match Sergio Aguero’s tally… or four more strikers. Click the slideshow arrows above to see who did even better than Henry. 5 1. Alan Shearer – 77 goals in 95 Premier League games – Perhaps the finest goalscorer the Premier League has ever seen, Alan Shearer is the runaway leader, with the former Blackburn and Newcastle star hitting an unbelievable 77 goals in his first 95 Premier League appearances. While he is perhaps more synonymous with Newcastle, it was with Blackburn that the Englishman was at his most prolific, scoring 112 league goals for the club in four years.last_img read more
