Mount joins elite 5 Premier League players this season with superb stat

Mason Mount has scored early tonight at Elland Road against Leeds with a special strike, right footed and first time from the edge of the box.

That takes him to 11 goals and 9 assists for the season in the Premier League alone.

As Sky Sports pointed out on their “statto” account, that puts him in pretty esteemed company for the season.

The other 5 players with 20 or more “direct goal contributions” are all among the league’s elite, and among the most in-form this season.

Mo Salah, Heung-Min Son, Cristian Ronaldo, Harry Kane. Ever heard of them?

Oh, plus Jarrod Bowen, who isn’t such a big name but is one of the players of the season outside the top 4.

Mount has had some poor spells this season, but the numbers speak for themselves – he is truly among the league’s elite now, and can still get better from here, especially when the whole team raises their level.
