The 20-goal Premiership strikers!

0

NOWADAYS it is hard for any one player to score 20 goals in a Premiership season!

Last term, Romelu Lukaku was the first striker to net 20+ times in the top flight for Everton since Gary Lineker in 1985-86, while Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Harry Kane (Spurs) and Diego Costa (Chelsea) are the only players who have bagged 20 goals in successive seasons. Indeed, Kane, the 2017 Golden Boot winner, notched the most goals in a Premiership campaign since Luis Suarez hit 31 for Liverpool in 2013-14
