Desc The best to ever do it Shearer’s record 260 Premier League goals may never be matched. A relentless scorer of all types of goals he made his name and won his only trophy as a Blackburn player but it is his time at Newcastle, where he broke Jackie Milburn’s scoring mark over 10 years of devoted service to his hometown club, that he is most fondly remembered for. Blessed with every conceivable asset you could want from a No 9, born in a different era Shearer would’ve easily been a £100m player

[Alan Shearer issues advice to Marcus Rashford on Manchester United role] Does he want to play through the middle? That is the big question. Where does he want to play?
