Football News

Everyone loves a top goal scorer. But how much does their goal tally tell you about their ability? 

A striker is no longer a striker these days. The out-and-out goal poacher is close to extinction and strikers are expected to do more in the attacking game of today including assisting and linking play for attacking midfielders.

*The top 10 has come courtesy of EA Sports' player performance index (PPI) - the only index recognised by the Premier League.
