So, we decided to crunch the numbers and look at the Premier League standings since the restart and which players have scored the most goals.

There have been plenty of players who have impressed this summer.

With the likes of Christian Pulisic, Bruno Fernandes, Danny Ings, Kevin de Bruyne and Mason Greenwood dazzling since the restart, there has been a lot of great attacking play, as well as the likes of Nick Pope, Michael Keane, Dani Ceballos and Eric Dier putting in some wonderful defensive displays.

Here’s a look at how many points each Premier League team has gained in their nine games since the restart (Man City-Arsenal and Aston Villa-Sheffield United left out as those were games from Matchweek 28) plus a list of the top goalscorers over the last eight games.
