:: Six of the 20 - Aguero, Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard, Ian Rush, Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer - have played for the club in question in the Premier League era.

:: Eight of the remaining 14 set their records in spells spanning the 1920s and '30s.

:: Everton's 383 is the highest tally while the lowest is Brighton's 123.

:: Bert Stephens, though, scored 174 goals for Brighton - many of them came in the unofficial wartime league, meaning Cook is listed as their record holder.

:: Dixie Dean is the most prolific scorer on the list with a strike rate of 0.885 goals per game, or seven every eight games. Peter Simpson is just behind at 0.846.

:: Luther Blissett and Tony Brown also hold the record for most appearances for Watford and West Brom respectively.

:: Brook made three additional appearances for Manchester City in the 1939-40 season, scoring once, but these were expunged from records following the outbreak of the Second World War.
