With a packed October schedule, what better way to celebrate the end of the international break with an October goal scorer special. Each of these goal getters has at least 5 Premier League fixtures this month, so I’ve backed them with a tenner to bag at least 4 goals.
These three’s respective teams fill out the top 3 spots in the league as it stands, and they’ve been the teams to top the goals charts.
City have scored the most in the league, with 11 of their 23 goals coming from the Nordic meat shield himself.
Not far behind, Spurs have scored 18 and the Gunners have scored 17. Jesus is Arsenal’s main man and has scored 4 already, while Son grabbed a 13-minute hattrick off the bench last time out against Leicester, and has found his footing this season after winning the Golden Boot last term.
Here’s their Premier League run-ins for October:
Gabriel Jesus – Arsenal
Arsenal have 5 fixtures this month with 3 at the Emirates:
Arsenal v Tottenham
Arsenal v Liverpool
Leeds v Arsenal
Southampton v Arsenal
Arsenal v Nottingham Forest
Jesus has been involved in 7 in 7, and I’d say he’s got a decent run of games later in the month to get on the scoresheet.
erling haaland – Manchester City
City also have 5 Premier League matches and 3 at home in October:
Manchester City v Manchester United
Manchester City v Southampton
Liverpool v Manchester City
Manchester City v Brighton
Leicester v Manchester City
Haaland seems like a no-brainer with his record.
Son Heung-Min – Tottenham
Spurs are lucky enough to have an extra match in October, with 6 in total:
Arsenal v Tottenham
Brighton v Tottenham
Tottenham v Everton
Manchester United v Tottenham
Tottenham v Newcastle
Bournemouth v Tottenham
Son may have had a slow start but let’s not forget the class he has, winning the Golden Boot with 23 goals last season. Can’t say he’s out of form either, a 13 minute hat trick off the bench last time out, and a goal in each of his internationals over the break.
