The list contains some of the most lethal strikers in the league’s history.
The Premier League has seen some of the finest goalscorers in its history. These players set multiple scoring benchmarks while playing for their respective teams. One of the many difficult feats in football is scoring with one’s weaker foot. For world-class players, the idea of “weak” does not exist. They work tirelessly in perfecting their finishing skills with both feet since the beginning of their careers.
On that thought, here are the five players with the most goals from their weak foot in Premier League’s history:
5. Romelu Lukaku – 33 goals
Romelu Lukaku has played in the Premier League for multiple teams. He is currently playing for Chelsea FC, after signing from Inter Milan for a second stint with the club. The former Manchester United forward has scored 33 goals from his weak right foot in the league.
The Belgian international has a total of 120 goals in the league from 276 matches. When it comes to power and physical prowess, then few strikers go a step better than Lukaku. The left-footed forward can hit the ball with equal intensity with his right foot.
4. Sergio Aguero – 34 goals
Sergio Aguero was one of the best strikers to have played in the Premier League. Before his untimely retirement from the sport due to heart-related issues, the Argentine international was playing for Manchester City. Helping the club to multiple trophies, Aguero also scored 34 goals from his weak left foot.
Overall, Aguero scored 184 goals in 275 matches in the Premier League. This puts him fourth in terms of all-time leading goalscorers in the history of the competition. He was a complete striker who had the knack of finishing from virtually every angle and with either foot.
3. Son Heung-min – 37 goals
Son Heung-min has reached the mark of 37 goals from his weaker left foot. Although, many believe that the South Korean in ambidextrous, having no weaker foot. It is a real possibility because the winger can hit the ball with the same precision from both feet.
He is the all-time leading Asian goalscorer in the Premier League. Overall, Son has 90 goals in 229 matches and has 51 assists as well. The former Bayer Leverkusen player will likely score more goals from his weaker foot and could become the all-time leader in the future.
2. Robin van Persie – 39 goals
Robin van Persie is tied at the top with 39 goals from his weaker foot. Back in his playing days, the forward was famous for his unforgiving left foot. He would unleash unstoppable shots that had goalkeepers shivering.
However, the former Manchester United player was brilliant with his right foot as well. After all, 39 of his 144 goals came from the right foot. He also had 67 assists in the Premier League and finished with one league title with MUFC.
1. Harry Kane – 39 goals
Harry Kane shares the top spot with Robin van Persie for scoring the most goals with the weaker foot in the Premier League. The Englishman has 39 goals from his left foot and will most likely add more to his tally in forthcoming matches.
The Tottenham Hotspur veteran is yet to win a Premier League title or a single trophy with the club. He has 179 goals overall, which is the fifth-highest in the all-time Premier League goalscoring charts.
