Shearer is the competition's top scorer with 260 goals split between time at Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United respectively.

It comes as no surprise that his goals settled big games and per Transfermarkt, 68 of his goals were match-winners.

1. Alan Shearer (68 match-winning goals)

While Shearer tops the list, it would be hard to argue against Aguero scoring arguably the greatest match-winning goal ever.

The Argentine international's final minute strike vs QPR in 2012 saw Manchester City win their first Premier League title and snatch it away from bitter rivals United.

Despite the goal going down in City folklore, Aguero doesn't think it was his best of games in sky blue.

He said on Twitch: "I didn't do anything that game, come on, I scratched my balls for the whole game!

"I only received a kick in the back and did nothing else...until the goal".

"I swear, guys, that I didn't want to kick the ball like I did; I didn't want to put it there.

"If I had it kicked like I really wanted, it would have hit the defenders in the way and it wouldn't have been a goal. But luckily I scored."
