Top Ten Premier League players with the highest percentage of goal involvement this 2021/2022 season.
While Mohamed Salah leads the scoring rankings, he is just fourth in terms of the amount of responsibility he has for Liverpool’s offensive production.
Not only do the best attackers score, but they must also always be personally engaged in a large percentage of their team’s output.
The top ten Premier League players who contribute to the largest proportion of their side’s goals
Emmanuel Dennis-Watford 58.3%
With nine goals and five assists this season, the Nigerian, who joined from Belgian side Club Brugge this summer, is the only player to have been directly involved in more than half of his club’s goals.
He had a good run in late November and December last year, scoring five goals in six games, and he recently scored the game-winning goal against Aston Villa to give the Hornets a crucial three points.
Teem Pukk-Norwich 46.7%
Norwich’s goal-scoring difficulties have been so severe this season that even six goals and one assist account for nearly half of their total output.
Pukk scored three goals in four games for Norwich in November, when the team appeared to be ready to fight under new manager Dean Smith.
Son Heung-min Totenham Spurs 45.2%
Son has remained an important component of Tottenham’s attack during that time, scoring nine goals and assisting five more this season, putting him on track to score in double figures for the sixth year in a row.
He’s created a lethal partnership with England captain Harry Kane, combining for more goals in a single season than any other Premier League combo in history last season.
He regained some form this season in December, scoring four goals in a row, and he just assisted two goals in a tremendous win away to Manchester City.
Mohamed Salah Liverpool- 40.6%
Salah has developed into one of the top players in the world since joining from Roma in the summer of 2017 for what now appears to be a bargain fee of £35 million.
He has the most goals (17) and assists (9), both of which rank him second in the Premier League.
Salah has only failed to score or assist in four games this season, compared to 18 in which he has contributed to a goal.
Neal Maupay, Brighton- 40%
The Frenchman has eight goals and two assists this season, making him an important component of a Seagulls team that has only scored once per game on average.
Graham Potter signed Maupay from Brentford just a few weeks after taking over at the Amex Stadium in 2019, and he appears set to have his most prolific league season yet, having already equaled last season’s goal tally and being only two short of his previous best.
Raphinha, Leeds, 37.9%
So far this season, the Brazilian has nine goals and two assists, which has been quite welcome in a Whites team that has not yet reached the heights of last season.
He has consistently contributed throughout the season, never going more than three games without scoring or assisting, and his best run of form came in November, when he scored four goals and added an assist in six games.
Jarrod Bowen, Westham-35.6%
Bowen has undoubtedly contributed to that since joining the Irons from Hull City in January 2020, and he has been a particular star on the right wing this season, with eight goals and the same amount of assists.
David Moyes will be hoping for more of the same as the season progresses, with his side currently four points off the Champions League places.
Raul Jimenez, Wolves-34.8%
Jimenez has been a Molineux player since 2018, when he joined from Benfica.
In his fourth season in England, he has five goals and three assists, making him a dangerous threat in a Wolves team that has struggled to score goals.
This season, the Wolves have yet to draw or lose a match in which Jimenez has scored, and his three most recent goals have all been key in helping Bruno Lage’s team win close games.
Bruno Fernandes, Man United-34.1%
Bruno Fernandes is in the middle of his second full season at Old Trafford, and since joining from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, he has proven to be a fantastic signing.
So far this season, he has nine goals and six assists, making him the most prolific player of this United team.
He scored a hat-trick on the opening day of the season against Leeds, and his most recent goal came against the same opponents, propelling him to fourth in the Premier League scoring chart.
United is striving hard for a top-four spot under Ralf Rangnick, and Bruno is proving to be an immensely vital asset in that quest.
Joshua King, Watford-33.3%
King joined Watford on a free transfer from Everton last summer, and he has since shown to be a great signing for the Hornets.
He has been personally involved in exactly one third of his new club’s goals so far this season, thanks to his five goals and three assists.
The Norwegian started his Watford career with a hat-trick against old side Everton in October, following up on his first assist a month earlier.
Roy Hodgson’s side are still in the midst of a relegation battle, four points off of safety, but having an attacker like King among their ranks is a nice boost.
