10th Alan Shearer – 147 minutes per goal

The Premier League’s all-time leading marksman with 260 goals, Shearer shared his years in the modern top flight between Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.

He won the title with Rovers in 1995 and scored 112 goals in 138 appearances for the Ewood Park club.

His record at Newcastle was not quite as impressive  – 148 goals in 303 matches – but he loved his hometown club so much that he turned down the chance to leave St James’ Park for Manchester United.
