Match day Four: who tops the English Premier League on the goal scoring chart?


At the start of the season, punters would have put money on either Mo Salah or Harry Kane. I believe currently, their hands will be fitted between their teeth as they watch Sadio Mane score last week.

Liverpool’s narrow 2-1 win over Leicester City saw the Senegalese score his fourth in the campaign; placing him on top of the goalscoring charts heading into the international break.

Even though Fulham’s striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic shared the same number of goals, Mane had more conversion rate than the Serbian.

The Reds number 10 boast of a scoring rate of one goal per every 86 minutes while the former Newcastle man have played more minutes in completing the same number of goals.

Manchester city’s goal poacher, Sergio Aguero has managed three goals while Chelsea’s middling attacker came from the bench to level with the all time Manchester City’s highest goal scorer.

Everton’s record signing Richarlison remains in similar position as well as he was absent in a clash against Huddersfield due to the red card he got vs Bournemouth.

Other players who share similar position are Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku, Tottenham’s Lucas Moura and Brighton’s Glenn Murray.

Last season’s top scorer, Mo Salah has however registered two goals,so as the multiple golden boot winner Harry Kane.

Premier league matchday 5 will resume after the international break. The whole players will definitely be in contention to lift their marks on the goal scoring chart.
