LONDON, Sporting Alert – The English Premier League top goalscorers heading into Week 25 for this weekend’s matches on February 6 and 7.
Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy continues to lead the pack at the top of the list with 18 goals and he remains the favourite to end the season with the English Premier League top goalscorers honour.
Vardy added two more goals to his tally in the win over Liverpool earlier this week and the England international leads the second place scorers by three goals.
Everton forward Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur are joint second with 15 goals and the pair are sitting good to add to their respective totals this weekend.
Odion Ighalo of Watford comes next with 13 goals and his contributions in front of the net have been vital in helping the newly promoted side maintaining a top 10 place in the EPL standings so far.
Completing the top five English Premier League top goalscorers is Leicester City’s playmaker Riyad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero of Manchester City who have both netted 13 goals already this campaign.
The goals from Mahrez are one of the main reasons the Foxes are sitting three points clear atop of the EPL table standings, while Aguero’s connections are helping the Citizens to maintain their title challenge.
Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) with 12 goals, Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle United) and Jermain Defoe (Sunderland) with 9 goals, and Diego Costa (Chelsea), Ross Barkley (Everton) and Andre Ayew (Swansea City) — all with 8 goals are also among the top scorers this term.
Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), 7 goals, Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), Anthony Martial (Manchester United) and Troy Deeney (Watford), 6 goals — all make the list as well.
