Who is the best striker in the Premier League?
Well according to our table documenting the best strike rates in the Premier League that is who comes out on top - and there is a few interesting inclusions in this alternative top ten.
|Team||Pos||mins / Goals||Apps||Mins|
|Sergio Agüero||Man City||FW||88.81||21||1,421|
|Ricardo Vaz Te||West Ham||FW||128.50||8||257|
Arsenal’s Danish rebel leaves the club this summer - and has only scored twice this season against Cardiff City and Hull City.
But he did so from just 157 minutes of football spread over nine Premier League appearances - making him the most prolific goalscorer in the Premier League when it comes to goals per minute ratio.
While other names on the list make sense - Aguero, Sturridge and Suarez included - others are harder to comprehend.
For instance - Demba Ba.
Until recently he has been a Chelsea afterthought but he is the fifth best striker when it comes to this category - scoring a goal every 114 minutes of football he plays.
Then there is Lukas Podolski. Another often taken off early or who starts on the bench. He scores every 124 minutes in sixth place.
New West Brom signing Thievy is in seventh before a couple of recently emerged Englishmen make an appearance.
Harry Kane and Connor Wickham have similar ratios since being brought into the first-team fold in March.
And rounding out the top ten - Ricardo Vaz Te - the West Ham forward has scored just twice this season but in 256 minutes of football. He has played just once in the league this year after dislocating his shoulder in October.
