The leading Premier League goal scorer for every playing position in the 2019/20 season

Jamie Vardy has been in electric form this season.

The English striker has hit the back of the net 17 times in the Premier League this season as Leicester look well on course to finish in the top four.

He currently leads the goal scoring charts ahead of Sergio Aguero (16).

But it’s not just the strikers that have the ability to score a plethora of goals.

Players from all over the pitch contribute and, thus, we’ve decided to look at the Premier League’s top scorer so far this season for every playing position.


Unfortunately, no goalkeeper has managed to hit the back of the net this season. It is indeed a rare occurrence, as only five goalkeepers have scored in Premier League history.

The most recent goalkeeper to score in England’s top tier was Asmir Begovic, who netted in 2013.

LB: Aaron Cresswell – 3 goals

Cresswell is having his best goal scoring season for West Ham, having netted three times.

The best of the bunch was a terrific free-kick from 25 yards against Manchester United.

He also scored a fine match-winning goal with his weaker right-foot against Chelsea.

CB: Virgil van Dijk – 4 goals

Not only is Van Dijk the best defensive centre-back in the Premier League, he’s also the best in attack.

The Dutchman has netted four Premier League goals this season, against Norwich, Brighton (2) and Manchester United.

RB: Matt Doherty and Ricardo Pereira – 3 goals

Doherty and Pereira are both vital for Wolves and Leicester respectively.

The former has netted against Watford, Sheffield United and Manchester City this season.

Pereira has been statistically the best right-back in the league this season, scoring against Tottenham, Newcastle and West Ham.

CDM: Jorginho – 4 goals

Jorginho is arguably the best penalty taker in the Premier League. 

He’s 3/3 from the spot this season, scoring against Brighton, Burnley and Arsenal.

The Italian midfielder also tapped home from a free-kick away at Arsenal.

CM: Kevin De Bruyne – 7 goals

Despite playing in a deeper role for Manchester City, De Bruyne has recorded a remarkable tally of goals and assists.

As well as recording 15 assists, The Belgian has hit the back of the net seven times. That’s coming from someone who doesn’t take penalties.

CAM: Dele Alli – 7 goals

Alli started the season off slow, before scoring five goals in seven games under Jose Mourinho.

He has only scored once in his last six games, though.

RM/RW: Mohamed Salah – 14 goals

Salah scored 32 Premier League goals in his first season for Liverpool and then netted 22 times in his second campaign.

With 14 so far in 2019/20, he’s set to smash the 20-goal barrier for the third season running. That’s ridiculous.

He’s within touching distance of another Golden Boot, too. Salah is just three goals behind the lead set by Vardy.

LM/LW: Marcus Rashford – 14 goals

Rashford was in with a shout of winning his first Golden Boot, until he suffered a serious back injury against Wolves last month.

Manchester United have not looked the same team since he has been out.

ST: Jamie Vardy – 17 goals

Vardy went crazy in the middle of the season, scoring 14 Premier League goals in a 12-game stretch.

However, he’s struggled in recent weeks and has failed to net in the league since his goal against Manchester City just before Christmas.

Vady currently leads the race for the Golden Boot, but Aguero (16), Salah (14), Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (14) and Danny Ings (14) are still all well in the running.
