The 4 Best Premier League Strikers from the Last Decade

The Premier League has always been known for its exciting high scoring games.

And central to that have been the amazing strikers that have piled on the numbers like anything. They have made the league more interesting and given nightmares to defenders around the country.

So let us look at 4 of the Best Premier League Strikers in the Last Decade!

Sergio Aguero

If we look at the past decade individually and collectively, there truly is no striker comparable to Sergio Aguero’s abilities.

Currently Manchester City’s highest goal-scorer, the Argentine has delivered some incredible performances for the club which has made the ‘noisy neighbours’ really noisy over the past decade.

Aguero has been the pivotal figure in Manchester City’s domestic success under three different managers.

And who can forget his title-winning goal against QPR in the 2011/12 season that set City on their course for domestic domination over the past decade.

In total, Aguero has registered more than 260 goals for the club. This has brought Manchester City five Premier League titles.

Aguero’s brilliance in the 2018/19 season saw his side become the first English side to conquer the domestic treble. Who knows he may lift his much-awaited Champions League title in his final game for the club.

Would be quite the deserving finale to the legendary Argentinian.

Harry Kane

Looking at his numbers, Arsenal fans wouldn’t like to be reminded that Harry Kane was once part of their academy before switching to Tottenham Hotspur.

The current England captain has been nothing short of brilliant for the North London side since his debut in 2012. Currently, Kane sits at 219 goals for Tottenham out of which 164 were scored in the Premier League.

In the current season, he sits top of the goal-scoring and assist charts which shows that he has got more to his game than just scoring. Kane’s best season for the club was in 2017/18 when he scored 41 goals in the season. He also scored 30 Premier League goals in the same season.

Kane was also part of the Tottenham side that reached the first Champions League final in their history in 2019. Mauricio Pochettino did start his talisman in the final, which many people argue that he shouldn’t have as he was not fit.

Will he be able to win a Premier League title to match his individual feats?

Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy’s football career has been nothing but a roller-coaster. Not many players have had such a thrilling ride to the apex of the game.

After being pivotal to Leicester’s promotion to the Premier League in 2014, he was one of the biggest figures behind Leicester’s remarkable title-winning campaign in 2015/16. Vardy scored 24 goals in that season.

He has reached the 20-goal mark twice after that season in 2017/18 and 2019/20. Currently, he is forming a great partnership with Kelechi Iheanacho uptop and is still central to the side.

In this season, Leicester have a great chance to lift their first trophy since their remarkable Premier League run as they play Chelsea in the FA Cup final. They also have a huge chance of securing their Champions League spot and Jamie Vardy will have a huge impact in ensuring that.

Since Leicester’s promotion, Jamie Vardy has scored 116 Premier League goals for the club. If things carry on like this, he is set to have his statue outside the Kingpower Stadium!

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Arsenal were lacking in goals after the departure of Alexis Sanchez in January 2018. However, there couldn’t have been a better replacement for the Chilean than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabonese was the last signing of the Arsene Wenger era and it definitely was one of his best. Ever since he joined the Gunners in January 2018, he has scored 85 goals for the club.

Even though Arsenal haven’t progressed themselves as a team, Aubameyang’s numbers continued to impress as he scored 22 goals in two consecutive Premier League seasons of 2018/19 and 2019/20.

Aubameyang became the first Arsenal striker since Robin Van Persie to hit the 30- goal landmark in a season. Like Harry Kane, he may also question whether he can add a Premier League medal to his CV with his advancing age.

Honorable Mention

While his time at United did not end well, Lukaku remained prolific in the Premier League before that scoring more than 15 Goals both at WBA and Everton before signing permanently for the Toffees and playing so well that he was signed for £75M by United. That spell did not turn out well so he is just an honorable mention on our list.
