Joselu – The NUFC striker who holds a record matched only by Lukaku, Kane & Salah so far this season

Some surprising stats have emerged, showing that NUFC new-boy Joselu has had the joint most shots on target in the Premier League this season, with only Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku, Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah matching his tally of 9.



Perhaps the most impressive thing about this stat is that Joselu has played significantly less minutes than those tied on 9 shots on target, with the Spaniard having only started two of our opening four games:

Joselu – 9 shots on target, 188 minutes

Mohamed Salah – 9 shots on target in 249 mins

Harry Kane – 9 shots on target, 355 mins

Romelu Lukaku – 9 shots on target in 360 mins

Admittedly, Joselu has 1 goal to his name compared to Lukaku’s 4, Kane’s 2 and Salah’s 2, but it’s a promising statistic for a man playing in a newly promoted team and one that bodes well if he can continue showing such an eye for goal.
