Former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer and ex-Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry, have become the first players to be inducted into the official Premier League’s Hall of Fame.

Shearer is the EPL’s record scorer, with 260 goals for Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.

The former England international won the title in 1995 with Blackburn.

Henry, on the other hand, scored a club-record 175 Premier League goals in 258 appearances for Arsenal.

The Frenchman was the league’s top scorer for a record four times.

Henry won the title twice and was part of Arsene Wenger’s team that went unbeaten in the 2003-04 season.

“I have to thank all of my teammates, as well as the managers and coaches that I’ve worked with.

“All I ever wanted to be was a professional footballer. It was my dream to do that, my dream to win trophies and my dream to score at St James’ Park, to wear the number nine black-and-white shirt and it was fantastic. I enjoyed every minute of it,” Shearer said.
