A total of 11 goals is enough for the Liverpool forward to maintain a four-goal lead heading into the Week 13 game, with a good chance of increasing his home tally against Southampton on Saturday.
His Reds teammate Sadio Mane and Jamie Vardy share second place with seven goals, but the Leicester star hasn’t scored since mid-October before Watford’s visit.
Vardy’s slowdown is of particular concern for the Foxes, as he carried the load more than any other player in the division, with 44% of his team’s goals.
Michail Antonio is another in a somewhat dry spell, scoring a goal in six Premier League appearances and six in total. Diogo Jota, Raphinha, Maxwel Cornet and Ismaila Sarr all sit on five goals ahead of the weekend’s action.
