Former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers striker Alan Shearer has selected his list of the 10 greatest strikers in Premier League history, including Liverpool and Everton heroes among his selections.

Shearer began his list by selecting former United striker Andy Cole, who was followed by current Tottenham star Harry Kane - who is one of only two active Premier League players in the list.

At the top of the pile, Shearer named himself as the best which is difficult to argue with given he still remains as the highest-scoring player in Premier League history, a title that will be difficult for anyone to snatch off him.

Making his choices in the latest edition of BBC's Match of the Day Top 10 podcast, the all-time Premier League goalscorer made his selections alongside former Arsenal striker Ian Wright and host Gary Lineker.

At eighth, Shearer selected former Liverpool striker Luis Surez - who would have been higher in the rankings if he had more longevity in the Premier League or if his spell with Barcelona was also considered.

The guidelines for the choices dictated that strikers could only be considered for their performances in the Premier League, so any subsequent or previous campaigns outside of England's top-flight would not be considered.

In fifth, the third of four United representatives is selected, with Ruud van Nistelrooy becoming the latest member of the dominant United years in the Premier League to be selected.
