Quiz: Name The Most Efficient Goalscorers In Premier League History

Quiz: Name The Most Efficient Goalscorers In Premier League History

One of the biggest stories in the Premier League this side of Christmas has been the rebirth of Jesse Lingard at West Ham, who is averaging almost a goal a game at the minute. Given he only scored one all season for Man United last year, it's been quite the turnaround to becoming one of the most prolific players in the league.

Lingard's record currently has him standing at a goals per games ratio of 0.9 - an incredibly high turnaround. Even top scorer Harry Kane only sits at 0.7, showing just how clinical Lingard has been.

It got us thinking, though - we all know Alan Shearer has the most goals in Premier League history, but who has the best goals-per-game ratio in the same period? In other words, who have been the most prolific players in the Premier League's near-30-year history?

We've added a few conditions. We're only considering players who've scored more than 100 goals in the Premier League, and we have included players who are currently playing. You have 8 minutes to guess the top 20. Best of luck!
