With the 2019/2020 season now over, this is the perfect time to examine some of the stats around the best performing players to give us an insight around who to pick next time around. Below I’ve examined the top 10 highest point scoring strikers.
1. Salah (Liverpool) – 251 points
2. Aubameyang (Arsenal) – 230 points
3. Jesus (Man City) – 228 points
4. Rashford (Man Utd) – 226 points
5. Martial (Man Utd) – 222 points
6. Kane (Spurs) – 220 points
7. Jimenez (Wolves) – 218 points
8. Vardy (Leicester) – 206 points
9. Ings (Southampton) – 203 points
10. Son (Spurs) – 201 points
An ongoing trend carries through to the list of strikers which is dominated by players from the top clubs in the Premier League with the exception of Ings and depending on if you class Leicester and Wolves as a top club. What is interesting when looking at the stats is how a player like Aubameyang outscored everyone else again other than Salah, yet was not seen as an essential player to own. There was also a lot of doubt around Salah’s form during the season yet he comes out top of the list of highest point scoring strikers. A lot of opinions come down to reputation and perception of certain players rather than statistical facts. Having said that it’s going to be very difficult to pick between or accommodate the big names this season. For me there are more choices than ever for strikers and you could easily make a case for any of the top 6 above being a vital pick. Add to that equation the likes of Aguero and Werner and it could create a real selection problem. I think this year the budget could be tighter than ever so getting a well balanced team to start the season could be a real lottery.
