The Premier League is without doubt the best and most competitive league in the world, with a number of top players plying their trade in England. Being a record goalscorer for a top club in the league is a prestigious honour, with very few being able to score goals on a consistent basis.

Here, we take a look at the top 6 clubs in England and their record goalscorers.

1. Manchester City - Sergio Aguero - 260 goals

Sergio Aguero can lay claim to being the best foreign striker in Premier League history, with the Argentinian scoring a staggering 260 goals in just 390 games for Manchester City in his decade-long association with them.

The 33-year-old moved to the Etihad in 2011 and will go down as their most impactful player and one of the greatest strikers in the history of the sport.

2. Chelsea - Frank Lampard - 211 goals

That Frank Lampard as a midfielder is Chelsea's all-time record goalscorer, goes to show just how brilliant he was when it came to making those runs and scoring from the center of the park.

The Englishmen is without doubt the greatest player in Blues' history and played a key role in establishing the club as one of the most dominant ones over the past decade or so.

3. Manchester United - Wayne Rooney - 253 goals

Manchester United's all-time record goalscorer with 253 goals, Wayne Rooney perhaps does not get the credit he deserves, considering that he was a prolific goalscorer for the Red Devils during his time at Old Trafford.

The 35-year-old will go down as one of the greatest strikers in the league and one of the greatest to come from England.

4. Liverpool - Ian Rush - 346 goals

Ian Rush had two different spells with Liverpool, and during that time scored a staggering 346 goals for them, which is a brilliant number and goes to show how deadly he was in the box.

The Welshman came third in the 100 Players who shook the Kop - an official Liverpool fan poll, showing the impact he had for the Reds.

5. Arsenal - Thierry Henry - 228 goals

Named as the greatest player in Arsenal's history, Thierry Henry was unstoppable during his time in the Premier League, with the Frenchman dazzling fans the world over.

Considered by many to be the best foreign player to play in England, the Frenchman's impact for Arsenal cannot be quantified.

6. Tottenham Hotspur - Jimmy Greaves - 266 goals

Tottenham Hotspur greatest ever goalscorer, Jimmy Greaves unfortunately passed away last week, leaving behind great memories and scoring a staggering amount of goals during his playing career.
