Fans of various clubs have been debating on social media about whose team had the best striker – past and present.
In London, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have all been blessed with some of the best forwards to have graced the Premier League.
Thierry Henry ruled supreme at Arsenal, becoming the Gunners’ all-time top scorer during his time in north London, while Didier Drogba helped Chelsea win nearly every trophy on offer as he netted both the equaliser and winning penalty in the Blues’ 2012 Champions League final shootout.
At Tottenham, Harry Kane has been the club’s top scorer in the last five seasons, and has netted 181 goals in 278 appearances in total.

But Chelsea supporters took to Twitter to argue that Drogba’s record in major finals sets him apart from any other striker, including Henry and Kane.
Some made the point that Henry never scored in a major final in his career, while others pointed to Kane’s lack of silverware.
One wrote: ‘At 34, Drogba won a Champions League final with Bertrand and Kalou as his wingers for service.
‘Henry failed to be the man to win a Champions League for a London club and always choked when it mattered.
‘Henry has ZERO goals in all the finals he was part of btw.’
Another posted: ‘I really don’t understand the Drogba hate at all. He bullied some of the greatest defenders we’ve ever seen. Harry Kane couldn’t even do it against Lovren in the World Cup.’
Some Manchester United supporters also got in on the debate, claiming that former striker Wayne Rooney eclipsed all three with his achievements at Old Trafford.
The former Everton striker became the all-time top scorer at Manchester United, and won five Premier League titles and one Champions League before leaving to rejoin boyhood club Everton.
