Aston Villa midfielder Marc Albrighton has taken the distinction of being the first player to score the 20,000th Premier League goal.
Marc Albrighton achieved this record in the midweek match against Arsenal. Even though Aston Villa lost the match at the last, Marc Albrighton has been rewarded with his achievement by allowing him to donate £ 20,000 to charity of his choice.
The previous landmark of 15,000 goals in the Premier League was achieved in December 2006 by Martin Votz of Fulham. Les Ferdinand was the another player to create this kind of record back in 2001 when he scored the 10,000th goal while playing for Tottenham.
