Almost all the matches in the sixth week of the Premier League have been running. Liverpool are currently leading the top of the standings in week six if Brighton are not able to win against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 early morning. There is also Norwich, which City have always lost in their first 6 matches.
Apart from that, there are some interesting things until this week six of the Premier League, one of the few top strikers who still can’t score. In fact, many expect them to be reliable goal contributors at their respective clubs. Here are the top 5 strikers who have scored zero goals until the sixth week of the Premier League.
1. Timo Werner – Chelsea
The presence of Romelu Lukaku makes Timo Werner often played in the winger position . Indeed, the German player can also play in that position. Unfortunately, he has not been able to score a goal in his first 5 matches in the Premier League.
Even so, he managed to score 1 assist in the Premier League in the match against Tottenham Hotspur last week. He also managed to score 1 goal in the Carabao Cup in the third round against Aston Villa.
2. Jadon Sancho – Manchester United
Jadon Sancho is one of the most expensive purchases of the Premier League in the transfer market last summer. Surely this makes many people expect that he will be able to contribute a lot of goals. Unfortunately, from the 5 matches he lived in the Premier League, Sancho was unable to contribute 1 goal or assist .
In fact, in the Bundesliga last season, he had contributed 8 goals and 12 assists for Borussia Dortmund. Indeed, Sancho himself seems difficult to adjust the game at Manchester United so far.
3. Nicolas Pépé – Arsenal
Nicolas Pépé is one of the attackers who bought Arsenal from Lille at an expensive price, which is 80 million euros or the equivalent of 1.3 trillion rupiah. Unfortunately, he was unable to impress last season. In his first 4 matches in the Premier League, he has not been able to score a goal even though he has contributed 1 assist .
While defending Arsenal, the official price fell sharply to 35 million euros or the equivalent of 585 billion rupiah. The player from the Ivory Coast is also quite threatened in his position at Arsenal along with Bukayo Saka’s brilliant performance so far.
4. Harry Kane – Tottenham Hotspur
Status as the top scorer and top assist in the Premier League last season, certainly makes many people expect that he will be a scary player for the opposing defense. Unfortunately, he was unable to score a goal in his first 5 matches in the Premier League. In fact, the England captain has also not been able to contribute assists so far.
Even so, he has managed to score 1 goal in the Carabao Cup in the third round and then against Wolverhampton. Apart from this, Kane still has a long time to prove his sharpness in the Premier League this season.
5. Anthony Martial – Manchester United
The presence of Cristiano Ronaldo is indeed not good news for Anthony Martial. The reason, he is more often played as a substitute in the Premier League. For 4 times playing in the Premier League so far, Martial has not been able to contribute 1 goal and even an assist .
The French player was actually rumored to be moving to another club along with the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo. However, it seems Martial is more willing to fight for his place in the Red Devils squad even though he has to compete with top names, such as Ronaldo, Cavani, Greenwood, to Rashford.
Well, those are the top 5 strikers who have not been able to score until the sixth week of the Premier League. Even so, this season still leaves a lot of games in which there is still a chance to show their sharpness. In your opinion, is there one of the players above who will be the top scorer in the Premier League this season?
