BBC And Gary Lineker Once Again Troll Alan Shearer Over FA Cup

Alan Shearer might still be the Premier League's top scorer of all time but he still manages to be the butt of the jokes when it comes to Gary Lineker and the FA Cup.

There aren't many people who can claim to have scored the most goals in the history of a league. It's quite the achievement no matter how long that league has been going.

Alan Shearer is the Premier League's all time top scorer and he's quite far ahead of anyone else around him, leading second place Wayne Rooney by 52 goals - with the former Manchester United striker unlikely to add to his tally.

There's a chance that either Sergio Aguero or Harry Kane could catch the former England striker but that's far from guaranteed and he could be top of that list for quite some time.

However despite all his achievements in the game, including winning the Premier League, Shearer still finds himself at the end of a running joke when it comes to BBC Sport and the FA Cup.

The former striker never won the competition and presenter Gary Lineker loves to troll Shearer about it, even getting the help of Wembley ahead of Saturday's cup final:

The former Southampton forward reached the final in back to back seasons with Newcastle United in 1998 and 1999 but the Magpies lost both games, to Arsenal and Manchester United respectively.

Lineker has spent much of BBC's coverage taking the mick out of the pundit and Shearer was ready to get the joke in first this time:

Clearly the 48 year old wasn't expecting the stadium to find a chance to mock him for not winning the cup.

In the meantime David Silva put Manchester City 1-0 up against Watford in the first half after made Ederson had made a great save from Roberto Pereyra earlier in the half.

Someone will definitely end the day with more FA Cup winners medals than Shearer ever won.
