The Americans With The Most Goals In The History Of The Premier League

It’ll come as a surprise to many, but since the Premier League’s inaugural 1992-93 season, 22 American footballers have gone on to score in England's top division. Sure, only eight of them have managed more than two goals, but we’re also the only nation to have had two goalkeepers score in the EPL. There’s no surer sign of a country’s footballing might.

This list grew to 22 players when 21-year-old USMNT phenom Christian Pulisic scored a perfect hat trick, and it’s only a matter of time before he starts to climb into the upper echelons of the rankings.
