Predicting the top scorer for each Premier League team

Adam Brown

As the 2017/18 Premier League campaign edges closer, it’s time to consider which players will be leading the way up top.

England has welcomed players like Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata to the Premier League, and if they can settle quickly, they could be deadly for their respective clubs.

As well as adding further quality from abroad, there’s also been some interesting moves between English clubs – such as Romelu Lukaku’s move to Manchester United.

The Belgian forward will undoubtedly flourish under Mourinho’s park the bus and counter attack style of play. While an obvious downgrade for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lukaku presents his own threat to teams, especially against lower half teams.

At a better team, with service that helped Zlatan Ibrahimovic to 17 Premier League goals last season, Romelu Lukaku looks likely to thrive at Manchester United next season. While his first touch has been mocked on social media, he’s a forward which almost any fan would relish to be leading the line for their team.

The signing was particularly smart as Lukaku is a forward who relishes games against weaker opposition – which should reduce the amount of draws by the Red Devils in the upcoming season.

With so many moves taking place before the season has even started, it’s shaping up to be quite an exciting year. As well as seeing how the likes of Lacazette fare in the Premier League, it will also be great to see how Wayne Rooney plays for Everton – a player who has been heavily criticised in the past few seasons, and sometimes unfairly.

Everton’s academy product has a chance to prove the critics wrong this season – the Manchester United legend will thrive with less expectation and pressure at Goodison Park.
