On the quest of recognizing the impact of great players that have made their feat unforgettable in the premier league, which necessitated the hall of fame recognition for great players, the premier all-time highest goalscorer; Alan Shearer and arguably the best striker in the premier league era Thierry Henry have become the first players to be inducted into the Premier League Hall of Fame.



The Hall of Fame is the highest individual honour awarded to players by the League and celebrates the talent and achievements of standout professionals who have featured in the division since its creation in 1992. To be eligible, players must have been retired as of August 1, 2020

Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker Shearer still holds the record as the Premier League's highest scorer with 260 goals in 441 appearances across 14 seasons.

He won the title with Blackburn under Kenny Dalglish in the 1994/95 campaign and went on to score 148 times in the top flight during 10 years at his boyhood club Newcastle from 1996 to 2006.

Former England forward is a three-time Golden Boot winner and remains the only player to have reached 100 Premier League goals for two different clubs.

Following his move to Arsenal from Juventus in 1999, Henry won the Premier League title twice and was a key member of the 'Invincibles' team which went unbeaten during the 2003/04 title-winning season.

The Frenchman won the Golden Boot award a record four times and scored a club-record 175 Premier League goals in 258 appearances for the Gunners.

He scored over 20 Premier League goals in five campaigns in a row between 2001 and 2006. Henry also surpassed Ian Wright's total of 185 goals in all competitions to become Arsenal's all-time record scorer (with 228) during his time in north London.
