20,000th Premier League goal

Rate this Entry
A major Premier League milestone is coming up with the 20,000th goal to be scored in the next two days. Thanks to AFS master statistician John Russell for the below list of previous goal milestones in the Premier league.

It would be fitting for Robin Van Persie to score the 20,000th but whoever scores will be able to donate 20,000 pounds to the charity of their choice, courtesy of Barclays.
