LONDON, Sporting Alert — Four players are locked early at the top of the English Premier League top scorers list after Week 1 on Sunday (13).
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), Sam Vokes (Burnley) and Steve Mounie (Huddersfield Town) are currently leading the pace with two goals.
Lukaku collected his brace in Manchester United’s 4-0 victory over West Ham United to make a blistering start to his career at Old Trafford, following his £90million move from Everton earlier this summer.
Vokes bagged two goals as well for Burnley in the shocking 3-2 win against champions Chelsea who were reduced to nine-players after Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill were both sent off.
Mounie was the scoring hero for newly promoted side Huddersfield Town after his double led The Terriers to a comfortable 3-0 win against Crystal Palace.
Vardy started his season with a bang as well, but unlike the previously mentioned players, the England international’s two goals weren’t enough to prevent Leicester City from suffering a heartbreaking 4-3 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League opener on Friday.
Also making notable starts to the new season were Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata who were both on target for their respective clubs on debut.
Lacazette netted for Arsenal in the win, while Morata came off the bench to score for Chelsea in a losing effort.
Olivier Giroud, who got the winner for the Gunners, Wayne Rooney, back at Everton from Manchester United in the summer and scored the lone goal against Stoke City, as well as United’s Paul Pogba and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, were also all on target in Week 1.
