The much awaited UEFA Champions League and Europa League final group matches will be played this week starting from tonight. The two tournaments will take a winter break until February when the knockout stage will kickoff. Today, as we wait to be entertained by European best players; let us recognize five legends with the best goal per minutes played ratio in Premier League history.
5. Fernando Torres- 173 Minutes Per Goal
🇪🇸 Fernando Torres
Before his move to Chelsea in 2011, Torres was a rapid, clinical, prolific marksman. After it, he was largely a bumbling, stumbling comic punchline of a striker. But in his three-and-a-half years with Liverpool he was a phenomenon. pic.twitter.com/LQ2IuIxoju

Liverpool and Chelsea legend Fernando Torres needed 173 minutes to score a goal during his time in English football. The Spaniard career went up in smoke when he joined the Blues but we can’t forget his numbers at Anfield. In total, he netted 81 for the Reds and 45 for the Blues.

Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo also needed 173 minutes to score a goal during his time in the Premier League. CR7 was the last player from the English League to lift the Ballon d’Or. He netted 84 League goals in 196 appearances for the Red Devils. In total, he managed 118 in 292 matches.
3. Didier Drogba- 169 Minutes Per Goal
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba needed 169 minutes to score a goal in the Premier League. The Ivorian ended his two spell Blues career with 104 League goals and 164 in all competitions. However, his big game mentality made him look bigger than life during his time at Stamford Bridge. The club will remember him for delivering not only several EPL trophies but also the elusive UEFA Champions League crown.
