We have finished Matchday 23 of the Barclays Premier League and approaching the later stages. So, this is a perfect parameter to analyse the performances of strikers from the “superior-class top six” teams. We have eight strikers from six teams with Liverpool and Manchester City sharing goals among their forward line.

1.) Mohamed Salah (Liverpool): –

Well, what should we say, Mohamed Salah has probably been the signing of this summer by Liverpool. He is not one of the strikers who plays centrally, rather plays on wide-right and cuts inside to score hefty amount of goals. It is not all that, the Egyptian’s scoring record this season surpassed perhaps his own expectations. Below, we have the stats analysis of his goal-scoring and also the points in field from where he has scored his goals.

2.) Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United): –

The Belgian had a great start to the season in terms of scoring goals frequently. His progress all of a sudden stalled when it came against the so-called “big boys.” Until September end, Lukaku scored 7 goals and looked to have done his bit in a great start for Manchester United’s season.

Post-September, he has tailed off a bit, scoring 4 goals in the next 14 games (spanning 3 months). Due to this drop, United have also dropped off a bit, trailing Manchester City by 12 points. Below, we have his stats analysis and points in the field from where he has scored his goals.

3.) Alvaro Morata (Chelsea) :-

This is Alvaro Morata’s first season at Chelsea signing from Real Madrid. Reminiscent to Lukaku, the Spaniard had a great start to this season in terms of goal-scoring. Then, he has tailed off, probably feeling first-season syndrome and also his first experience of no winter break.

He started off well scoring vital goals and capped off his two good early months with a hat-trick at Stoke. Faded in October and scored a vital goal in November against Manchester United. Capped off December with two goals in four games. Yet to score in 2018 (might have had a hat-trick at Arsenal, 4th January 2018).

Below we have his goal stats and performance stats overall. Along with it, we have the points in field where Morata has scored his goals.

        Apps – 18(2 from bench)

4.) Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal): –

The new signing from Lyon, France arrived this summer at Arsenal with plenty of potential. He started the season well to give the Gunners’ fans a hope of optimism that he is one of the strikers they were looking for. But, as they, he also has suffered with a “troublesome” dressing room situations at Arsenal currently.

The quality of service has been of a lower quality thus far. He started well scoring in his very first game and kept on chipping with goals. But, in the last three months, he has scored 3 goals, averaging a goal per month. Not good for a 50m striker. Maybe, the creativity in Arsenal has to take share of this downfall.

Below we have accumulated his stats and performance numbers so far in the Premier League. Furthermore, an image indicating from where in the field he has scored his goals from is added.

5.) Harry Kane (Tottenham): –

Harry Kane has been a model consistency when it comes to regularly banging goals in the Premier League. He is one of those strikers who always seems to be in right position at right time. The England striker has so far bagged 20 goals with 15 games remaining, a contender to take the golden boot for the third successive season.

6.) Sergio Aguero (Manchester City): –

The Argentine has been a great goal-scorer for a few seasons for Manchester City. He has been in and out of the side throughout this season but still has managed to play 16 games out the 23. His scoring boots have never been in doubt and he has proved that this year too.

Below we have assembled his goal stats and also his performance numbers in this Premier League season.

7.) Roberto Firmino (Liverpool): –

The Brazilian is the only “False 9” in the Premier League and called the “engine” by Jurgen Klopp. His work-rate off the ball is commendable and link-up play on the ball is pleasing on the eye. His goal-scoring return has improved a lot this season, constantly proving a threat from every corner for opposition teams.

Below we have assembled his contributions for Liverpool this season in numbers.

       Apps – 19(3 from bench)

8.) Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City): – 

The Brazilian has had a stop-start season generally due to rotation and now an injury against Crystal Palace ruled him out for two months. Despite that, he has had a good goal return in the matches he has taken field for. He has always been a very good poacher, quite similar to his strike-mate Aguero.

Below we have assembled his performance in numbers for this season so far.

      Apps – 12(6 from bench)

      Mins – 1017
