5th – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
There has been little sign of second season syndrome creeping in for Liverpool’s ‘Egyptian King’ so far this year, as he has found the back of the net twice already for the Reds. Matching last years tally of 32 goals will be a difficult task, but Salah continues to pop up in great goalscoring situations, which makes him one of the most dangerous players in the league.
WhoScored rating: 7.75
6th – Pedro (Chelsea)
The Chelsea winger seems to have been given a new lease of life under the club’s new manager this season, as he has already scored three Premier League goals, which is just one strike short of his final tally last year. At 31, Pedro remains an explosive threat in the final third and he will no doubt continue to have a big impact on the team as the fixtures start piling up in the coming weeks.
WhoScored rating: 7.72
7th – Troy Deeney (Watford)
The strong English centre-forward has tormented opposing defences so far this season as Watford have fired their way towards the top of the Premier League with a 100% start. Deeney has scored two goals, most recently heading home against Tottenham to set the team on their way towards a famous win and supporters will hope he can do the same against Man United after the international break.
