Only Sturridge beats ALF

4 September 2013

Le Fondre high on England scorers

Only one English Premier League player has scored more goals this year than Adam Le Fondre.

Of all the players who started 2013 in the Premier League, Le Fondre's 12 goals are bettered only by Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge.

That puts Le Fondre level with Frank Lampard, and ahead of the likes of Wayne Rooney, Rickie Lambert, Theo Walcott, Andy Carroll, Danny Welbeck et al.

And in statistics published in the Sunday Times this weekend, only five Premier League players of any nationality have scored more goals than Alfie this year. Benteke, van Persie, Bale, Sturridge and Suarez - who between them have a transfer value of perhaps £200million - were the only ones to outstrip our frontman.

Le Fondre already has three League goals this season, scoring against Ipswich, Watford and then with an important match-winning penalty at Yeovil on Saturday.
