The Premier League has been home to some brilliant players from Germany over the years – but can you Germany’s top 20 goalscorers in the competition?

Germany are one of the most successful nations in the history of football and have won two major trophies – Euro ’96 and the 2014 World Cup – since the inception of the Premier League.

And, despite their current woes, German footballers remain in demand for England’s top clubs while some of the brightest young English footballers have learned their trade in the Bundesliga.
