Top 10 Premier League strikers of all time - #5

Sports Mole's countdown of the top 10 Premier League strikers of all time continues with number five - Dennis Bergkamp.

Dennis Bergkamp is by no means the most prolific player on this list, but the Dutch master brought so much more to the game than just goals and there will be plenty of Arsenal fans who regard him as even more important than the likes of Thierry Henry or Patrick Vieira to the club's success under Arsene Wenger.

Bergkamp only scored more than 15 Premier League goals in a season once and ended his career with 87 goals from 315 appearances in the division, but his contribution is far less easily quantifiable.

The class, poise and artistry shown by the former Ajax and Inter Milan forward helped the Gunners to win three Premier League titles and four FA Cup crowns during his 11 years with the club - including two doubles and the Invincibles season of 2003-04.

The 1997-98 campaign was arguably Bergkamp's crowning glory, though, as he helped Arsenal to the double and scooped two awards of his own - the FWA Footballer of the Year and PFA Players' Player of the Year.
