Jamie Carragher Names His Top Ten Premier League Strikers In Incredibly Controversial List

Jamie Carragher has named the ten greatest strikers in Premier League history - with Thierry Henry coming out on top.

The Liverpool legend played against most of these forwards in his career and has first-hand experience of how deadly they can be.

Sky Sports pundit Carragher has put together his list for The Telegraph and gives the nod to former Arsenal man Henry.

Carragher paid tribute to Henry in the piece, stating: "There is only one winner in this list. It amazes me that anyone would ever debate it. It is not even close. Henry is not only the greatest Premier League striker, he is the greatest Premier League player."

Aguero does get the nod in second place after helping usher in a new era at City.

Scorer of THAT goal vs QPR to snatch the title away from Manchester United in 2012, Aguero has terrorised defences for a decade and scored against every team he's come up against... bar Bolton Wanderers.

When discussing Salah, Carragher writes: "In each of his three seasons at Anfield he has won either the Golden Boot, the Champions League or the Premier League. He may do so again in 2021."
