BBC Sport visitors name in order the top 10 best ever Premier League strikers
Alan Shearer last week named his best ever 10 Premier League strikers of this modern era.
The short list was drawn up by the Match of The Day commentary team.
The Newcastle United legend putting himself, rightfully, at the very top.
Ian Wright acknowledging that was the only proper place for Alan Shearer: ‘The amount of goals he scored, and where he did it. I’ve grown to love Al but I did used to hate him – because I was so jealous!’
That Alan Shearer top 10 is below but now BBC Sport have revealed the results after asking fans to give them their own preference of the top 10 Premier League strikers.
By Sunday almost 90,000 people had voted via BBC Sport and this was the overall outcome of their top to bottom list:
Ruud van Nistelrooy
