Premier League sides have scored with welcome regularity over the opening months of the campaign with the goals having flowed across the division, a number of leading names having made their mark so far.
Goals win games and having players capable of both scoring and creating prolifically is essential to any side’s hopes of success, and we’ve decided to look at the stars who have been involved in the most goals so far this season.
So for those of you interested in the best betting review sites like OLBG that cover all the latest big game odds, here are the six players with the most goal involvements in the 2020/21 campaign so far:
Jamie Vardy – 11 goal involvements
Last season’s Golden Boot winner remains the key figure in the Leicester attack, with the forward picking up where he left off to enjoy a prolific start to the season for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Vardy has scored nine goals for the campaign already including a late winner at Sheffield United last time out, the 33-year-old showing no signs of slowing down as he looks to finish as the division’s leading scorer for a second successive campaign.
The Foxes’ forward has lost none of that explosive pace and remains amongst the Premier League’s best in terms of attacking movement, featuring on the shoulder of the last defender in signature style before finishing emphatically.
Vardy’s nine goals have been added to by two assists for the campaign to date, his 11 goal involvements having helped Leicester into the top four and a figure bettered by just three players across the division.
Mohamed Salah – 11 goal involvements
Mohamed Salah is once again amongst the Premier League’s most productive attacking talents, with no player having provided more goal involvements in the division since his debut for Liverpool three-and-a-half years ago.
Salah has been in superb form over the opening months of the campaign and scored a hat-trick on the opening weekend against Leeds, with the Egyptian international firmly in the mix for a third career Golden Boot after scoring nine goals in 10 league appearances this season.
The 28-year-old has also provided two assists including a wonderful cross for Joel Matip against Wolves on Sunday evening, taking his tally to 11 goals involvements for the season and a phenomenal 82 goals and 29 assists in the Premier League since arriving on Merseyside.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 11 goal involvements
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the current leader in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot following a stunning start to the season at Everton, the forward amongst the most improved players in the division under the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti.
The 23-year-old has scored 11 times in just 11 appearances for the Toffees over the opening weeks of the campaign, with the star needing just two more goals to equal the career-best 13 he scored during the 2019/20 campaign.
Calvert-Lewin’s goals have demonstrated an improvement in his attacking instincts with almost all of his goals coming from one-touch finishes inside the penalty area, his form having earned him inclusion in the England set-up for the first time.
The forward has made an immediate impact at international level with two goals in four caps and looks to have established himself as the first-choice deputy to Harry Kane.
Bruno Fernandes – 12 goal involvements
Manchester United’s signing of Bruno Fernandes proved the catalyst behind their second half of the season resurgence in 2019/20, and the midfielder remains the source of inspiration for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Fernandes has scored seven times and provided a further five assists so far this season, in addition to adding a further four goal involvements in five Champions League fixtures.
The Portugal international has now directly contributed to 26 goals in just 24 league fixtures since moving to the Premier League from Sporting Lisbon in January, a staggering return for a midfielder who has instantly cemented himself amongst the division’s best.
No player has created more chances than the 26-year-old so far this season, his figures only likely to increase as the creative hub of the Red Devils side.
Son Heung-Min – 13 goal involvements
Tottenham are the current league leaders in this season’s title race, with the fortunes of the north London side having largely been fired by two irresistible talents in the forward line.
Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane have become the Premier League’s deadliest double-act over the opening weeks of the campaign, combining brilliantly to fire Spurs into title contention.
The former has scored 10 goals in just 11 league fixtures during the current campaign and has provided a further three assists, his mix of speed and skill causing nightmares for opposition defences.
Son scored one and assisted another in Spurs’ north London derby victory over Arsenal last weekend and his stunning start has catapulted the South Korean into the conversation of world football’s best inside forwards, his performances of late undoubtedly world class.
Harry Kane – 18 goal involvements
Harry Kane’s record-breaking start to the season continued this weekend with yet another goal and assist in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Arsenal, combining brilliantly with Son Heung-Min as the league leaders secured north London bragging rights.
Kane’s game has evolved as the multi-functional spearhead of Jose Mourinho’s new-look Spurs side, dropping deeper and demonstrating his creativity with perfect passes for the likes of Son and Steven Bergwijn.
The 27-year-old leads the Premier League for assists with an incredible 10 for the campaign already, whilst his increased creative output has not diminished his goalscoring threat with eight goals to date.
No player in Europe’s five major leagues has been directly involved in more goals so far this season, Kane’s outstanding performances increasing hopes that Spurs can end their long wait for major silverware.
Should the forward continue at his current trajectory, he could join Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi as the only player’s in history to score 20+ goals and provide 20+ assists in a season in one of Europe’s leading divisions.
