Aymeric Laporte’s first goal for Manchester City was a landmark strike for France in the Premier League.
The defender’s thumping header at the weekend to equalise against Wolverhampton Wanderers was the 1,500th scored by a Frenchman in the competition.
But who scored the first French goal in the competition and which player got the most?
Only Englishmen have scored more in the Premier League, with 10,974 goals. Third are Scottish players with 953 goals.
Players from the Republic of Ireland are two goals further back and then Dutchmen with 916 goals.
Only England, with 809 players, have provided more.
Fifth on that list is Eric Cantona, who was the first Frenchman to score in the competition.
Olivier Giroud, the Frenchman with the most PL goals currently active in the PL, is fourth on the all-time list above.
The Chelsea striker needs 10 to move up to third place, but another 100, if he is to better Henry.
