Gareth Southgate isn’t picking England squads based solely on goals in the Premier League. Clearly, he is not an idiot and he wants to give chances to youngsters like Jadon Sancho and [checks notes] Wayne Rooney, who are both gobbling goals abroad.
Such a plan would also leave you rather short on keepers. Yet goals win games, and after the first 12 games of the Premier League season, these are the English players who’ve rippled the net in the competition.
Just three clubs have made it through the first dozen games without an English goalscorer: Newcastle, West Ham and Wolves. Every other club has at least one, from the four English players tied on six strikes at the top, to those with just one goal.
