Top 10 Highest Scoring Strikers 2020/2021

With the 2020/2021 season a distant memory, 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. Kane (Spurs) – 357 points
2. Salah (Liverpool) – 265 points
3. Rashford (Man Utd) – 257 points
4. Son (Spurs) – 225 points
5. Mane (Liverpool) – 224 points
6. Calvert-Lewin (Everton) – 204 points
7. Sterling (Man City) – 180 points
8. Bamford (Leeds) – 173 points
9. Iheanacho (Leicester) – 171 points
10. Vardy (Leicester) – 167 points

As always, this list is dominated by players from the top clubs. However, there are a few interesting takeaways from the top 10. Firstly despite Man City winning the league, only one of their players makes this list. It’s probably down to not having a recognised striker who gets regular game time, however despite a quiet season Sterling still came out on top for them. He’s now back down as a midfielder and only priced at 4.5m so could be a bargain. Chelsea won the Champions League and finished well in the Premier League but don’t have a striker on the list. This is interesting in itself, as it proves having a good season doesn’t necessarily mean players will score big points. There are also a lot of big names missing from the list, such as Aubameyang, Werner and Jesus. This shows that you don’t always have to go for the top players to do well. Having said that, Kane topped the table by quite a long way so he’s going to be hard to ignore. Son also always seems to make the top 10, so you could argue that he’s almost certain to grab you 200 points every season. For that, he’s not a bad price at 5m.

  1. DTT, do you think Mane and Sterling need to be classified as strikers as Sky Sports game did last season? It would prevent teams from looking similar.

    1. I’d personally say they are strikers and it would mix things up a lot so I’d be fully behind that move

  2. Anyone know much about Mbeumo of Brentford? Midfielder with a lot of goals and assists if he can carry over that kind of form to the prem he could be a great enabler at only 1.5m?

    1. I must admit I’ve never heard of him but I don’t tend to look at any players outside of the top 6-7 teams.
