Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs - The Top Six Team That Have Had The Most Different Scorers This Premier League Season
Unsurprisingly, the Premier League top-six top the charts for the most goals scored this domestic season, but while Manchester City (81 goals) and Liverpool (72 goals) are romping away at the top of the goal-scoring charts, we ask the question which of the Premier League heavyweight sextet have had the most scorers in the division this season?
Chelsea are the lowest scorers of the front six with a meagre 52 goals from their 31 games, while Tottenham Hotspur (58), Manchester United (60) and Arsenal (63) are next on the list in a league campaign that still has an array of twists and turns to go before the European spots are dished out amongst them.
Well, delving deeper into those scoring statistics we have found that the six sides have a fairly similar record in terms of the amount of goalscorers that have hit the back of the net this season in the league, but there's one club that just tops the pile with 15 different players scoring a Premier League goal this season.
Whether it's an ever-changing starting XI that has proven the catalyst for this club to have amassed 15 scorers, or they're a side that play in a manner in which a host of players get into scoring positions, but the team in question is Manchester United, who have had 15 different scorers.
Romelu Lukaku is the Red Devils' top scorer with 12 league goals this season, while Marcus Rashford's goal at the weekend against Watford saw him become the fourth United play to reach the ten-goal mark in the Premier League, and it's the first time since the 1995-96 campaign that four United players have reached double figures in the goal-scoring charts in the league.
With United topping the most goalscorers chart, it's Chelsea that take second spot currently as the Blues have amassed 14 different scorers in the division. Cesar Azpilicueta's 'offside' goal for the Maurizio Sarri's men against Cardiff City yesterday saw the Spaniard become the 14th player to hit the back of the net in the Premier League this campaign.
Amazingly, third place in this mini-table of most scorers in the league is held by the remaining four clubs as Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have all had 13 different scorers in the Premier League this season, with Spurs have six players that have only scored once this season, with Harry Kane dominating their scoring charts with 17 in the league this season.
For those wondering out of the top six who is the team with the lowest amount of different scorers then that falls to relegation-bound Fulham, who have only had nine different scorers in the league this season, while a more shocking statistic comes from a brief look at Huddersfield Town's goal-scoring stats, as their top scorer is on three goals and five of their ten scorers have scored one goal among their 18 scored in the league this season.
