EPL has had quite a few prolific super-subs (from Solksjaer to probably Chicharito today). Who has scored the most goals as a substitute in the EPL?

Note: If statistics aren't available since 1991, feel free to give an answer from the year of availability of statistics

Also, who has scored the most winners as a substitute?

    I would be interested to see these stats on a goals per game basis too. Chicharito, Džeko, et al., of the "modern" era have been making a name for being very potent, off-the-bench scorers.

Jermain Defoe has scored the most Premier League goals with 20 off the bench. This is followed by Kanu and Solksjaer with 17 each.


  • Seems like a good answer to me. My bet for the most winners would be on Solskaer though
