European football is slowly getting back after the festivities. Serie A Clubs will return this coming week to participate in Cup games. La Liga and Ligue 1 returned last weekend after ending their Christmas holidays early. Premier League continues this coming weekend after taking a weekend break to pave way for FA Cup third round matches. Today, we want to focus on the highest scoring Germans in the English top flight.

Did you know that Robert Huth is the most successful German player in the history of the Premier League? He might not have a fancy name like Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski but has lifted 3 English League titles. He won it twice with Chelsea in 2004/05 and 2005/06 season.
We all remember he was the rock at the back of Leicester City defence when they won the League in 2015/16 season. As a centre back, his goal record is great too. The 34-year-old currently club-less netted 22 goals in 322 Premier League appearances.
3. Uwe Rösler- 29 EPL Goals
Uwe Rösler might be recognizable as the likes of Gerd Muller but some English fans might know him pretty well. This is because he netted 29 goals in 103 Premier League matches for Manchester City and Southampton. The former striker is the current manager for Swedish side Malmo FF.
