Harry Kane overtook Frank Lampard’s Premier League goalscoring tally to sit alone in fifth place on the prestigious all-time goalscorers list.
The Tottenham talisman scored the goal for Antonio Conte’s side, who earned an important 2-0 victory at Brighton, in the fight for Champions League qualification.
We takes a look at the top scorers to honor England’s top flight since it was renamed in 1992.
Harry Kane (178 goals)
In his 272nd appearance in the top flight, Spurs hero Kane scored his 178th goal to secure his place at this exclusive club.
As the North Londoners secured a lead over Amex, the England captain disarmed the Seagulls offside before beating Robert Sanchez in typically decisive style.
The 28-year-old will aim to reach the top spot.
Speaking last month, he said: “I think it’s there to be done.
“Obviously it’s still 90 goals but it’s definitely a goal to try to achieve it, I feel like I still have a lot of career years ahead of me.”
Sergio Aguero (184 goals)
Sergio Aguero will forever be a legend in Manchester’s blue half after scoring one of the most iconic goals in English football history against QPR to seal the title on a dramatic final day in 2012.
Before heading to Barcelona, where a heart condition unfortunately forced him into early retirement, Aguero managed 184 goals in just 275 Premier League appearances.
The Argentine won five league titles during his time at the Etihad and became City’s all-time top scorer.
The small forward holds the Premier League record for most hat-tricks, having scored 12, and is the only overseas player on this esteemed list.
Andy Cole (187 goals)
Andy Cole was no stranger to a bit of club switching and enjoyed goal-filled spells at most of his seven Premier League clubs.
In fact, if the former Manchester United and Newcastle hitman was a regular penalty taker, he might even have escaped to the top of the pile.
Cole has scored 187 goals in 414 top appearances, most winning five titles in eight seasons with the Red Devils.
Wayne Rooney (208 goals)
Wayne Rooney has overtaken the great Bobby Charlton as the all-time leading goalscorer for United and England, although Kane is hot on his heels for the Three Lions.
In 491 games, Rooney registered 208 goals and 103 assists for Everton and the Red Devils.
Five-time Premier League champion Rooney has had a stellar career but is far from the top scorer on this list.
Alan Shearer (260 goals)
You can’t mention the Premier League’s top scorers without mentioning the big man.
With 52 more goals than the next name on the list, Alan Shearer’s record will be broken.
Scoring 260 times in 441 games over 14 seasons with Blackburn and Newcastle, it’s a small miracle the No9 has won just one title and four Player of the Month awards.
Shearer is the fastest player to reach a century in the Premier League – taking just 124 games – and remains the only player to reach over 30 in several top-flight campaigns.
