Here comes a comparison of who plays the number nine position better for between the three noteable strikers. Dominic Calvert-Lewin marked his debut appearance with a goal, while Danny Ings also scored his first goal for his country with an acrobatic effort when England beat Wales 3-0 at Wembley. One other event creator is Ollie Watkins who scored a memorable hat-trick for Aston Villa in their 7-2 win over Liverpool. His first three goals in top-flight football. Include Jamie Vardy, in international retirement but last season’s Premier League golden boot winner, and this is boom time for the English centre-forward.
In total, there have been 37 Premier League goals scored by English forwards so far this season. It is some number after just four rounds of games. Indeed, it is a dozen more than in any season during the previous decade and more than three times as many as were scored by English forwards at the same stage between 2012 and 2014.
Such is the astonishing goal glut of late that more goals had been scored by English forwards as of the first week of October than in seven of the previous eight seasons – and that despite the fact that the current campaign kicked off a full month later than is usual. Something is happening here.
