Premier League top scorers: Vardy looks to move ahead of Chelsea ace Abraham vs Arsenal | Football | Sport


Tammy Abraham drew level with Jamie Vardy as Chelsea overcame a resilient Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the weekend’s early kick-off.

Abraham has more goal contributions than any player in the league after he fired the Blues in front early into the second half with a side-footed finish before Christian Pulisic scored a second.

That put him level on 10 goals in 12 games with Leicester frontman Vardy, who takes on Arsenal – who boast eight-goal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – at the King Power Stadium this evening.

Harry Kane is in action at 3pm, with Tottenham hosting Sheffield United and the England international set to return after missing last weekend’s draw at Everton.

On Sunday, Sergio Aguero will hope to score his first ever goal at Anfield when Liverpool and Manchester City lock horns in the most anticipated fixture of the season so far.

The Argentine, who won the Golden Boot in 2014-15, has seven goals in the Premier League against Liverpool, all of which have come on home soil.

Raheem Sterling also seeks a first goal at Anfield since he swapped Liverpool for City in the summer of 2015, having netted against his former club for the first time in the Community Shield in August.

Liverpool duo Sadio Mane, whose name has dominated the build-up to the clash after City manager Pep Guardiola accused him of diving, and Mohamed Salah will hope to build on their tallies of six and five goals respectively.

Earlier in the day, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will view the visit of Brighton to Old Trafford as an opportunity to improve their records with Neal Maupay the chief threat for the visitors.

At the same time, Wolves – and Raul Jimenez – face Aston Villa, who will hope Wesley can score his first goals since October 5 in a West Midlands derby at Molineux.
