Erling Haaland, a recent addition to Manchester City, now leads the league in goals scored after his team rallied from two goals down to defeat Crystal Palace 4-2 on Saturday.
Leeds’ Rodrigo, who has four goals but failed to score against Brighton this past weekend, is after the City player. Aleksandar Mitrovic of Fulham has now joined him on four goals after scoring the first goal in their 2-1 loss to Arsenal. Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace and Luis Diaz, who scored twice in Liverpool’s 9-0 thumping of Bournemouth, both have three goals. Pascal Gross scored the game-winning goal for Brighton. Martin Odegaard scored against Fulham to bring his season total to three goals.
Numerous players, including Harry Kane of Tottenham, who scored the winning goal for Spurs against Wolves, are within striking distance of the leaders and are only down by two goals. Two more people are from Arsenal: In his competitive home debut, Gabriel Jesus scored twice, while Gabriel Martinelli added a third.
James Maddison of Leicester and Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney of Brentford are other players in the chase.
However, “own goal” has had a stronger season start than all of the aforementioned, with nine players already scored into their own net.
