What If Only Goals By English Players Counted In The Premier League?
If only goals scored by English players counted in the Premier League, this is what the table would look like.
Southampton lead by talisman Rickie Lambert hold a three point lead at the top just ahead of Liverpool, whose ‘buy overpriced And English’ policy finally bearing fruit. West Ham in keeping with their fine tradition of producing quality English talent lie in third, although this team is a far cry from Bobby Moore and Trevor Brooking, it being spearheaded by Geordie and Scouse Yeomen like Carroll and Nolan.
Man United after a below par season from Wayne Rooney lie just outside the Champion’s League places with the Old Trafford faithful despairing at Danny Welbeck’s profligacy in front of goal.
Arsenal are in 11th place with Arsene Wenger hoping for a fit Jack Wilshere and some development from Oxlade-Chamberlainand even more improved finishing from Theo Walcott to drive them on next season. Man City are struggling in 13th, suffering from an over reliance on James Milner and Gareth Barry.
