Premier League headed goals PL

Harry Kane scored a record number of header goals this season.

In a peculiar 3-3 stalemate against Saints on Saturday in Premier League 2023, Kane entered himself onto another line in the annals of history, yet it might not go as far as being named the top goal scorer in the heritage of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

Harry Kane scored his ninth headed goal of the season in the Premier League to give Spurs the lead against the Saints, out-heading former teammate Kyle Walker-Peters and Arsenal loanee Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Only legendary Duncan Ferguson has ever scored as many aerial goals in one season throughout the tournament’s thirty-year existence.

And with this, we take a look at the top Premier League clubs with the most headed goals this season.

4. Brentford: 8

Ivan Toney has been phenomenal for Brentford this season as he is the second-highest scorer in the league, and they hope to maintain this form through the remainder of the season. Brentford have also been a complicated club this season with hopes of securing a place in European competition next season. They are in eighth place and could qualify for the Europa League or Champions League.

4. Arsenal: 8

Arsenal are on track to win the Premier League for the first time since 2003–04 as they now sit atop the rankings. Under Mikel Arteta, they have been particularly good this season with players displaying much more grit than the season before, when they failed to qualify for the Champions League. Arsenal have taller players like Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes who can dominate any opponent in a one-on-one match. Goals have also been rolling in, and they are among the club with the most headed goals, with eight.

3. Liverpool: 10

Liverpool are having a frustrating season as they are already out of both the domestic cup competitions and the Champions League. They still seem to be suffering from the effects of last season’s quadruple failure despite winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. Nonetheless, they have been among the teams with the most headed goals. The Reds feature towering players with good aerial skills like Nunez, Van Dijk, Konate, Fabinho, and Gakpo, and they will attempt to push the Reds towards Champions League qualifying for next season.

2. Fulham: 12

With Fulham now sitting ninth in the league, Marco Silva’s team has been a headache for several elite Premier League teams this season. Thanks to their lethal striker Alexander Mitrovic, who has a phenomenal goal-scoring record, they are the second club with the most headed goals. This year, Fulham has scored 12 goals off of headers.

1. Tottenham Hotspur: 14

Tottenham, who are now fourth in the league, still has aspirations of earning a Champions League ticket despite struggling to win games and being eliminated from the majority of competitions, but continuing their bad form might hurt their rankings. Harry Kane, who has continued to be their primary goal scorer despite the team’s awful form, deserves credit for the fact that they are the top club with the most headed goals this season.

Harry Kane has tied Duncan Ferguson’s single-season record for most headed goals in the Premier League from 1997–1998 with nine goals so far this season. Leap.
