Eden Hazard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have won the most points for their teams this season

While Sergio Aguero tops the scoring charts, we take a look at the players who have scored the most important goals this season

Both he and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have won their teams the most amount of points so far this season.

But which other Premier League mules have single-handedly won their teams the most points this campaign?

Take a look to see who else makes the top ten below.

Liverpool’s new main man?

While Mohamed Salah is Liverpool’s top scorer in the Premier League, Mane’s 17 goals have won The Reds more points than the Egyptian’s 18.

Mane has nearly doubled his entire tally from last season and his good form going into the tail end of the season will be vital if they want to win any trophies this year.

9 – Marcus Rashford – 10 points (10 goals)

It has been another strong year for Rashford

While his stand out moment from this season came in Paris, the league form of the England striker has also been impressive.

With every goal the young striker has scored, the Red Devils have gained a point because of it.

8 – Anthony Martial – 10 points (10 games)

Both Martial and Rashford have scored the same number of goals and won the same amount of points for Man United.

The Frenchman has achieved the feat in three less appearances so has earned the higher spot on the list.

7 – Roberto Firminho – 10 points – (12 goals)

It looked like Bobby was having a dryish season before his Anfield hat-trick against Spurs.

Firminho has earned the same amount of points as his team-mate Mane.

The Brazilian has done so with less goals making him the more clutchy player and putting him higher up on the list.

6 – Aleksandar Mitrovic – 11 points – (10 goals)

He went down with a fight

While Fulham’s return to the Premier League ended on a whimper, one man The Cottagers can’t really blame is their Serbian striker.

While his goal contributions were potentially helpful, it has now been over 720 minutes of league action since his last goal.

That might have something to do with the mid-season signing of Ryan Babel… And his red hair.

5 – Glenn Murray – 11 points (11 goals)

In his first 71 Premier League games, Murray scored just 14 goals during spells with Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

Since joining The Seagulls, the striker has scored 23 in 65 Premier League appearances.

Once again his goals look to be the main reason Chris Hughton’s side will avoid the drop.

Surely the 35-year-old doesn’t have one more season in the tank?

4 – Richarlison – 11 points (12 goals)

He looks thrilled…

The 50 million pound man arrived with a lot of hope and expectation on his shoulders from the Goodison Park faithful.

His flying start to the season gave them serious promise but, like the team, Richarlison’s form dipped in the middle of the season.
He has recently found the Midas Touch once again and his efforts have seriously contributed towards Everton’s push for seventh.

3 – Salomon Rondon – 12 points (nine goals)

The one-man wrecking ball

Of the Venezuelan’s nine goals, eight of them have led to The Magpies winning Premier League points.

With Newcastle being one of the tipped clubs to go down at the beginning of the season, a lot of credit has to go to their 29-year-old bulldozer up top.

None of Newcastle’s 11 scorers have hit double figures this season, highlighting how important some of Rondon’s strikes have been.

2 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 14 points (17 goals)

Joint in first with Hazard is the Arsenal front man.

The Gabonese forward’s goal scoring has dried up lately with jut four goals in his last 12 outings.

Arsenal need their main man to pick up the form he showed in October – when he scored five goals in three appearances – if The Gunners want one of the top four spaces.

1 – Eden Hazard – 14 points (16 goals)

Chelsea’s loss will be Real Madrid’s gain

Eden Hazard has either scored or assisted 49.7% of Chelsea’s goals this season.

He is the only Chelsea player with over ten goals and most of the 16 have been of point scoring significance.

With a transfer ban imminent and Hazard fancying pastures new in Madrid, his departure will leave a big hole on the left flanks of Stamford Bridge’s pitch.

Both Hazard and Aubameyang have carried their teams to within touching distance of the top four but neither can stop now.

Both sides are in the Europa League quarter-finals so the fate and success of both teams may well depend on how well these two can perform.

Don’t worry Eden, it’ll get easier in Madrid…
