&lt;b&gt;Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink - 127 goals&lt;/b&gt;
First appeared in the Premier League with Leeds - where he bagged over 20 goals in each of his two seasons with the club in what was a good spell for the Elland Road based club. A quick sojourn in Madrid and Hasselbaink was back - this time with Chelsea, which is where he scored the majority of his Premier League goals.

&lt;b&gt;Michael Owen - 147 goals&lt;/b&gt;

&lt;b&gt;Thierry Henry - 174 goals&lt;/b&gt;
When brought to Arsenal by Arsene Wenger, Henry was considered an overrated wide player. Wenger turned him in to a striker in one of the most inspired positional changes of all time.

&lt;b&gt;Andy Cole - 187 goals&lt;/b&gt;
Made his name at Newcastle before he was controversially sold to Manchester United. The partnership he struck up with Dwight Yorke at Old Trafford was devastating, and integral to United winning the treble in 1999.
