Since the Premier League's formation, at the start of the 1992–93 season, 29 players have scored 100 or more goals in the competition.

During the 1995–96 season, Alan Shearer became the first player to score 100 Premier League goals, and holds the record for the fewest games taken to reach 100, doing so in 124 appearances. He also holds the record for most goals scored in the Premier League.[1][2] After Shearer, Harry Kane is the second-fastest to 100 goals, doing so in 141 games.[3] At 23 years and 133 days, Michael Owen is the youngest player to reach the hundred goal milestone.[4]
