Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has picked Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, and Luis Suarez as the top three strikers to ever play in the Premier League.
The three made names for themselves in England’s top-flight during their playing days, with Shearer, in particular, standing out.
The former England international is the league’s all-time top scorer with 260 goals, which he amassed during his stints at Newcastle and Blackburn.
Suarez only spent four seasons in England with Liverpool but managed to find the back of the net 82 times in 133 matches, while Henry is still Arsenal’s all-time top scorer with 175 goals.
“My all-time top three Premier League strikers? You’d have to say Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry as the stand-out two,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“And then, in terms of absolute quality and players I’ve enjoyed watching, I thought Luis Suarez was out of this world at Liverpool.
“He’s in the top-three for me but Shearer and Henry are way ahead of everyone else,” he added.
Owen too is considered among the best strikers of his time following successful stints at Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Stoke City.
