LONDON, Sporting Alert – Leading goalscorers in the English Premier League after Week 7, which ended on Sunday, Oct. 2.
The man topping the list on Monday (3) is Chelsea forward Diego Costa, who has been in great form again this season and has scored six goals so far.
Costa had a similar productive start in his first season at Stamford Bridge two terms ago but struggled during a different campaign last year.
The Spanish international is back to doing what got him a move from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea in the summer of 2014.
Sitting second in the goalscoring list on Monday are Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and midfielder Michail Antonio of West Ham United with five goals each.
Four Liverpool players, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane are on three goals apiece among the goalscorers, so too are Marcus Rashford of Manchester United and Christian Benteke of Crystal Palace.
Manchester City, although losing for the first time in the Premier League this season, still top the points standings with 18 points, but their lead is now just one point, as Tottenham, the side that ended the Citizens’ run, sits on 17 points.
