Son, Kane, Salah: Who has the most PL goals since 2015/16?

Heung-min Son was at his mercurial best once again last Sunday afternoon.

The South Korean superstar scored a brace and notched an assist in Tottenham Hotspur‘s 3-1 home win over Leicester City.

Son has now moved onto 19 Premier League goals for the 2021/22 season and only Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah currently has more.

There’s absolutely no doubting that Son is one of Spurs’ greatest signings of the Premier League era and he is already a bona fide club legend.

The 29-year-old joined the club in the summer of 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of around £22 million.

And since arriving in north London for that bargain price, Son has scored the sixth-most Premier League goals.

Using Transfermarkt, we’ve worked out the 20 players with the best goal records since the start of the 2015/16 season and you can take a look at the list in full below.

So, Mane and Salah are the only wide forwards ahead of Son, while Kane leads the way with an enormous total of 155 goals – over 30 more than Vardy in second place.

The Spurs duo are pretty decent, aren’t they?

Antonio Conte will need both at their best for the remainder of the campaign as they bid to finish in the top four.

Spurs are currently two points behind Arsenal and face a daunting trip to Anfield on Saturday evening.
