Today, we will be looking at the most clinical strikers in the Premier League this season. When these ruthless hitmen are baring down on goal, there is only ever one outcome.
To measure a strikers’ clinical edge, we will consulting their goals to xG stat [via FBref]. Essentially, this weighs up the amount of goals that a player has scored versus the amount of goals that they should be scoring. If a player is over performing in this category, we feel it is fair to call them a clinical finisher.
We have seen some incredibly clinical finishers in the Premier League over the years – Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler all spring to mind.
