Premier League's top goal scorers

Premier League has produced some of the best goal scorers. Here is a list of few of the top scorers.

Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy has broken the record for scoring in consecutive Premier League games. His strike against Manchester United was his 11th goal in a row. He is having a campaign to remember. A penalty at Bournemouth in late August sparked a remarkable run of success in front of goal. Here are all Vardy’s goals so far

Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has been directly involved in more goals than any other player in England's top four divisions this season.The Belgian forward has scored 12 goals for Everton in all domestic and European competitions and assisted another four, 16 in total.
That puts him just one ahead of eight other players who have each been directly involved in 15 goals for their respective clubs.

Odion Ighalo

Odion Ighalo has been another sheer classy striker who has been amongst the goals. Watford lie 12th in the table and was promoted this term from the Championship. Ighalo is a pivotal player for the side and Watford's journey will depend on the 26-year-old Nigerian.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane celebrates scoring his ninth goal in six matches for Tottenham against Qarabag. Harry Kane fired Tottenham into the knockout stages of the Europa League as they finally overcame a stubborn display from Group J’s bottom side, Qarabag. The England striker, a surprise inclusion in the starting lineup with Spurs facing Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, nodded in the winner with 12 minutes remaining.

Sergio Agüero

His ball control and powerful bursts make him almost unstoppable in the box. A fine finisher went presented with a chance, he has a capacity to create in the most difficult circumstances.

Olivier Giroud

Powerful striker Olivier played an important part in Arsenal’s 2014/15 campaign, scoring 19 goals from just 26 starts in all competitions.
The France international centre forward began the season by scoring a stunning effort from 25 yards in the Community Shield victory over Manchester City at Wembley, then grabbed a dramatic late equaliser as Arsenal drew 2-2

Alexis Sánchez

On 26 September 2015, Sánchez ended a run of ten Premier League matches without a goal by scoring his first hat-trick for Arsenal in a 5–2 win at Leicester City. This made him the first player to score hat-tricks in each of the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga. Sánchez then scored his first Champions League goal of the season a few days later, in a 3–2 loss to Olympiacos, latching onto a Theo Walcott cross to head beyond Olympiacos goalkeeper Roberto. The following league match, the last match before the international break, Sánchez scored for the third match in a row, scoring a brace in the first 20 minutes, as Arsenal defeated Manchester United 3–0 home at the Emirates Stadium and moved up to second place in the league.

Riyad Mahrez

They are Leicester City, they are top of the league. For once the story was not about Jamie Vardy, unable to equal Jimmy Dunne’s top-flight record of scoring in a dozen consecutive games, but about his august deputy Riyad Mahrez. The winger reached double figures for the season with a clinical hat-trick to send Claudio Ranieri’s team back to the top of the tree, strengthening their case to be this year’s Christmas No1.
