The Top 10 Premier League Goalscorers In The 2010's

The Top 10 Premier League Goalscorers In The 2010's

With the 2010's coming to an end, Sergio Aguero will end the decade as the highest-scoring top scorer in the Premier League.

The Argentine, who joined Manchester City in the summer of 2011 from Atletico Madrid, has scored a ridiculous 173 goals in the top flight.

He scored 23 in his debut season - his final strike being that infamous last-gasp goal against QPR to win City's first league for 44 years - and has remained incredibly prolific throughout his time in England.

With persistent injuries, 'Kun' has only failed to hit 20 goals in two separate seasons - in 2012/13 and 2013/14, and won the Golden Boot in 2014/15 when he bagged 26 in the league.

Now 31, Aguero is comfortably the top Premier League scorer of the decade but Harry Kane's excellent goalscoring record sees him in second on 134 goals - which is incredibly impressive considering he wasn't a regular in the Spurs side until 2014.

His lowest league tally was 17 - and given he's still only 26 - he's easily the most likely candidate to level Alan Shearer's overall record.

Wayne Rooney's goals dried up towards the end but his form at the start of the decade was enough to put him in third place on 114, one ahead of Romelu Lukaku, who bagged plenty for West Brom, Everton and Manchester United before his switch to Serie A.

Robin van Persie is fifth with 98 goals for Arsenal and Manchester United, with Jamie Vardy doing superbly to occupy sixth spot after starting the decade in the lower echelons of Non-League football.

The Leicester City hitman is just four goals from a Premier League century, having notched 16 in 17 this term for the Foxes.

Eden Hazard lies in seventh after scoring 85 goals, seven more than his former teammate Olivier Giroud in eight.

Raheem Sterling and Sadio Mane, two of the league's top marksmen these days, are level on 75 goals and complete the list thanks to their heroics in front of goal.

Here is the list in full:

1. Sergio Aguero (173 goals)

2. Harry Kane (134 goals)

3. Wayne Rooney (114 goals)

4. Romelu Lukaku (113 goals)
