Zlatan Ibrahimovic was among the goals again on Sunday as he netted in Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

A dramatic late leveller at Old Trafford – with his header squeezing over the line off the underside of the crossbar – was the Swede's 14th effort in Premier League action this season.

While he can claim to have been as productive as Newcastle legend Shearer – who started out in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers - and Manchester City talisman Aguero, Ibrahimovic falls short of a couple of United favourites.

Ruud van Nistelrooy netted 15 times in his first 20 appearances, while Andy Cole hit 18 in the colours of Newcastle – with those efforts earning him a move to Old Trafford.

It is, however, Sunderland striker Kevin Phillips who tops the chart, with the former England international finding the target 19 times in his first 20 appearances back in 1999-2000
