The six players with the most combined votes will enter the Premier League Hall of Fame.

Andrew Cole

Cole came alive in the penalty box. Deadly with both feet and his head, his eye for goal helped Manchester United to five Premier League titles.  

He was the first player to score five times in a Premier League match when he starred in a 9-0 victory over Ipswich Town in March 1995.  

And his goal against Tottenham Hotspur on the final day of the 1998/99 season regained the title for the treble-winning side.  

Prior to his spell at Old Trafford he won the Golden Boot with a tally of 34 goals for Newcastle United in 1993/94, a total yet to be beaten.

What they said

“For the treble season alone, [Dwight] Yorke and Cole were the best [strike partnership I played with at Manchester United]. They were sensational, the way they played together. They lit up the whole league. They lit up Europe." - Gary Neville

"I've watched him any number of times and his all-round game is very good." - Alan Shearer

‘[Cole] is somebody who still doesn’t get the credit for me when people talk about the top end of the Premier League." - Ian Wright

Did you know?

Cole scored 187 goals in the Premier League, a tally surpassed only by Wayne Rooney (208) and Alan Shearer (260).

None of Cole’s 34 goals in 1993/94 were scored via the penalty spot, making it a record for non-penalty goals in a PL season.
