Can you name the top 20 Dutch goalscorers in PL history?

The Premier League has been blessed with a number of excellent Dutch players – but can you name the 20 players from the Netherlands to score the most goals in the competition?

With a reputation for technical excellence, and handily placed just across the Channel Sea, plenty of footballers from the Netherlands have played in England throughout their careers.

While some top-flight managers have been suckered into signing bad Dutch players – thinking they’ll be the second coming of Johan Cruyff – others have thrived in the Premier League to become cult heroes for their respective clubs.

Players like Edwin van der Sar established themselves as some of the leading players of their generation but we’re specifically interested in whether you can name the top 20 Dutch scorers in England’s top flight since 1992.

The list is a wonderful mix of household names with those that are more obscure, meaning it’s not necessarily as easy as you might expect.

We’ve given you 15 minutes to name them all, with the number of goals each player scored and the clubs the appeared for in the Premier League given as a clue. An asterisk denotes the player is still active in the Premier League.

The score to beat from the Planet Football office is 16/20, but we reckon you can do even better than that if you set your minds to it.
