EPL’s top 5 surprise goalscorers of all time “23 goals for a winger”

Chelsea’s newest signing, Cole Palmer (22), has been called out by his captain, Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham).

Football365, an English soccer specialist, discussed Cole Palmer’s exploits on Tuesday (June 20) and listed five players in the history of the English Premier League (EPL) who have defied the odds to become the league’s top scorer. South Korean international Son Heung-min is one of them.

Son scored 23 goals in the 2021-2022 season, tying him with Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah for the league’s top scorer. It was a milestone in his career and the first for an Asian player. “He didn’t play as a striker like Cristiano Ronaldo (Alnasr – then Man United) in the 2007-2008 season,” said the publication, “He wasn’t a frontline striker like Ronaldo when he was top scorer. He was a winger, but he was a top scorer.”

The media also emphasized the partnership between Son Heung-min and Harry Kane (Bayern Munich). In the 2021-2022 season, Son was the top scorer, while Kane scored 17 goals and provided seven assists. Tottenham finished fourth in the league and qualified for the Champions League.

In addition to Son, Football365 also named Coventry City’s Dion Dooly in 1997-1998, Southampton’s Kevin Phillips in 1999-2000, Chelsea’s Didier Drogba in 2006-2007, and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy in 2019-2020.

This season, Cole Palmer has been a refreshing change of pace. Cole Palmer joined Chelsea from Manchester City in the summer transfer window last year. He was recognized as a highly touted prospect, but at City, he was pushed aside by more senior players and didn’t get much playing time. At Chelsea, however, he’s hit the ground running. This season, Cole Palmer has 20 goals and nine assists in 27 league appearances. He’s tied for the league lead in goals scored. He’s tied with ‘monster striker’ Elling Holland (20 goals – Man City).

He has many similarities to Son Heung-min in that he is an unexpected player who no one expected to compete for the top scorer’s award, and he is a second-choice option, playing as a right winger or attacking midfielder rather than a frontline striker.

However, Son Heung-min could be the man to pull off the miracle once again. This season, Son has 15 goals and nine assists in 29 league games. He has the most goals and the most assists on the team, even though he decided to withdraw from the 2023 Asian Cup in 카지노사이트 Qatar a month ago. He’s aiming for both the goals and assists titles. With 15 goals, Son is tied with Jarrod Bowen (West Ham) for seventh in the league in goals scored. It’s a long way from the top group, which includes Cole Palmer and Holland, but it’s not out of reach. With Son’s driving ability, it’s not impossible for him to overtake them.

Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins (19 goals) is third, followed by Alexandar Isaac (Newcastle), Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth), and Salada (17 goals).

Heung-min Son is also tied for fourth with nine assists. Watkins, Pascal Gross (Brighton) and Kieran Trippier (Newcastle) are tied for first with 10. They are separated by just one.

So far, all eyes are on Cole Palmer, but Son Heung-min could take it at any moment. If Heung-Min Son becomes the EPL’s top goalscorer and top assister this season, he’ll make history. Only four players in EPL history have won both the goals and assists titles. Andy Cole (retired) with Newcastle from 1993-1999 (34 goals and 13 assists), Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (retired) with Leeds United from 1998-1999 (18 goals and 13 assists), and Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) with Tottenham from 2020-2021 (23 goals and 14 assists). In the 2020-2021 season, Salah scored 23 goals and provided 14 assists to win the top goalscorer and top assists award.
