52 appearances, 20 goals
The number of goals Kanchelskis scored for Everton from the right wing would make most strikers green with envy. He earns his place on this list thanks to his explosive first season on Merseyside, when he scored 16 goals in 21 games. The season after he was hampered by injury and distracted by an agent whispering sweet transfer nothings into his ear. Kanchelskis is regarded by Joe Royle as the best player he has ever managed, and it was hard to disagree as the Russian sliced through the opposition with his pace. Mike Tyson’s hugely influential trainer Cus D’Amato used to tell him that “speed kills” and he’d repeat it like a mantra to his young charge; Kanchelskis displayed a similar brutally direct speed to the heavyweight.
