’19 Goal-10 Help’ Crazy performance → Son Heung-min and Holan became ‘EPL King’… “It’s going up to a new level.”

April 22, 2024 | by

Ollie Watkins, the first 10 goals and 10 assists in the five major European leagues this season, was selected as the best striker in the Premier League, beating Erling Holan and Son Heung-min.

Sky Sports of the United Kingdom selected the best striker in the Premier League this season on its official YouTube channel on the 20th (Korea time). With Holan, the leading scorer, and Tottenham ace Son Heung-min tied for third place with West Ham striker Jared Boan, Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins took the long-awaited first place.

“Watkins has 19 goals and 10 assists. Surprisingly, he has not won a single penalty kick,” Sky Sports said. “There are many players, but Watkins deserves the top spot this season. Considering what he expected from Watkins and the team he is currently playing for, Watkins has taken a step up to a new level. His finishing is perfect and fantastic.”

On the other hand, he said that considering the level of the Manchester City team, Holan’s personal influence on the game is less than that of Watkins. “He will score more goals than any other player until the end of the season. Whoever becomes the coach, Holan will want to score.”

As for Son, he is the most decisive player in the league. He is the best and consistent in Tottenham. He has improved a lot since Harry Kane left. He scored goals and gave assists, especially when facing tough teams such as Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

In second place was Newcastle striker Alexander Isak, and West Ham striker Boan was tied for third place along with Holan and Son Heung-min.
According to Sky Sports’ assessment, Watkins is the best player in his personal career this season.

He has 19 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League alone, closely trailing leaders Holan and Cole Palmer by one goal, and is also tied for first in the help list.

Watkins scored one goal and two assists in an away match against Sheffield United in the 23rd round of the Premier League in February, leading to a 5-0 victory. Watkins, who had his 11th goal and 9th and 10th assists at the same time, will have his first 10 goals and 10 assists in the top five European leagues this season.

It is one of the very difficult records to achieve because you have to score 10 goals and 10 assists in a season alone in the league. Only 44 players have scored 10-10 at any one time in the history of the Premier League. 핑크알바

Since then, Bayer Leverkusen ace Florian Birtz has become the second player to achieve 10-10 after Watkins with 11 goals and 10 assists in the Bundesliga. No players have recorded 10-10 so far in Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A and France’s League 1.

Watkins’ performance was highly evaluated as he has set such a difficult record to achieve. Son Heung-min also has 15 goals and nine assists in the league, leaving only one assist, but he has yet to step on the 10-10 mark due to his sluggish performance.

Thanks to Watkins’ performance, Villa are leading Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League next season. With one more match to go, Villa are three points ahead of Tottenham. With one match to go against the Big Six, chances are high that Villa will take fourth place.

It is expected that Watkins, who is considered the best striker over Son Heung-min, will finally shake off the pursuit of Son Heung-min and Tottenham and get a Champions League ticket.
