Tottenham without Kane? United missing Zlatan? How would your team fare if their top scorer was absent?

Date Posted,April 4, 2017

The usual suspects are topping the Premier League scoring charts once again.

Harry Kane, Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa are all up there, with Everton’s Romelu Lukaku leading the way with 21.

All of the sides depend on their star names so much that they would simply not be the same without them.

We’ve seen how much Manchester United depend on Zlatan Ibrahimovic , who found the net on his return to the side against Everton.

So just where would your side be without your top scorer?

Chelsea are on course for the Premier League title but without Costa’s 17 goals, they would be 12 points worse off – and in second.

So who would capitalise and take top spot?

Get excited, Liverpool fans – you would be heading for the Premier League title!

Harry Kane’s goals have been worth eight points to Spurs meaning they would drop as low as fifth.

Manchester City and Arsenal would stay in fourth and sixth respectively, while without Ibrahimovic’s 16 goals, United would be down in seventh, eight points worse off.

Despite boasting the league’s top scorer in Romelu Lukaku, Everton would rise to joint-second – but it is their Merseyside rivals who would go top of the pile.

The goals have been shared across Jurgen Klopp’s squad and they would be four points better off if all side’s lost their top goalscorer.
