Salah leads the league with 13 goals
Heung-min Son, Calbert-Lewin, and Body tied for 2nd place with 11 goals
When Son Heung-min (28, Tottenham) was silent, the competition for the scorer in the English Premier League (EPL) became more intense.
Son Heung-min played full-time in the 2020-2021 EPL round 14 home game against Leicester City, played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time), but failed at the expected 100th goal in Tottenham’s career.
Son Heung-min is scoring 11 goals (4 assists) in the league this season, and has scored a total of 14 goals (7 assists) in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League.
In addition, he has scored 99 goals in the official game since joining Tottenham in 2015 with his last score against Liverpool. Son Heung-min, who had only one goal left until Tottenham’s 100 goal, took the ball shed by Toby Alderweireld as a header in the 36th minute corner kick chance in the second half. In a rush, he connected with a right-footed shot, but the opponent Kasper Schmeichel’s goalkeeper saved him. While Son Heung-min failed to hunt for the goal, his competitors struck horribly up.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (13 goals), the leader in EPL’s scoring as of the 21st, continued their uptrend after having scored for four consecutive games in December.
Starting with Wolverhampton (1 goal), Fulham (1 goal), Tottenham (1 goal), and Crystal Palace (2 goals) all scored.
Salah has been ranked as the top scorer in EPL twice in the 2017-2018 season and the 2018-2019 season. He is in charge of the penalty kicker for Liverpool this season, which is very advantageous in the competition for the scorer.
Next to Salah, three players, including Son Heung-min, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton) and Jamie Bard (Leicester City), are scoring 11 goals.
Calbert-Lewin, who has competed with Son Heung-min from the beginning of the season, scored seven goals in five games after the opening, but the scoring pace has recently dropped. There are no goals in the third game since the match against Burnley on the 5th.
Son Heung-min also scored against Arsenal and Liverpool in December, but the match between Crystal Palace and Leicester remained silent.
Badi, the top scorer last season, joined the team while the two players stagnated. Body, who scored the winning goal in the penalty kick against Tottenham, stood shoulder to shoulder with Son Heung-min and Calbert-Lewin with 11 goals.
The pursuit of the tied fifth-placed group is also fierce.
Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandez, Harry Kane (Tottenham) and Patrick Bamford (Leeds United) are following closely with nine goals.
Among them, Fernandez is boasting an excellent goal sense even as a midfielder, scoring multi-goals in the match against Leeds United.
