⚽Season 2021/22: PL players with the most match-winning goals

Cristiano Ronaldo was the difference for Manchester United this season with his hat-trick over the weekend as he gave his side three more points in a game that saw them trailing two goals down to restore parity.

While Ronaldo has been important to United, other players have been key figures in their teams as we look at the top 10 winners of the Premier League this season.

  • = 4. Phil Foden (4 winning goals)

The Manchester City star finished fourth on the list of most match-winning players during the 2021-22 season.
Foden’s 82nd-minute win with City away at Everton in February 2022 was the most memorable of the four winners of the match.

  • = 4. Bernardo Silva (4 winning goals)

Foden’s teammate Bernado Silva also contributed four goals in a row. These goals came against Leicester City, Burnley, Aston Villa, and Watford.

  • = 4. Raheem Sterling (4 winning goals)

The third and last City player on this list is Sterling. The England international reaches double figures (10) for league goals in 2021-22.

His superb penalty kick to seal City’s narrow 1-0 win over Wolves at the Etihad in December 2021 was the highlight of the group; This was GBP’s 100th goal in the Premier League.

  • = 4. Sadio Mane (4 goals to win)

Just like his City counterparts, the Senegalese has been an important player for Liverpool as they aim to snatch the league title from Pep Guardiola’s side.

His match-winning win over West Ham United at Anfield in March 2022 was crucial to keeping the Reds at bay against league leaders Man City.

  • = 4. Evan Toni (4 winning goals)

12 league goals in his first season in the Premier League is something to admire. He helped a third of those club win, and Brentford are now in a position where their first division status next season was secure.

  • = 4. Bukayo Saka (4 goals to win)

Saka has been one of Arsenal’s most important players in their quest to return to the Champions League. He is the club’s joint top scorer in 2021-22 with 10 goals in all competitions. The match-winner at home to Aston Villa in March 2022 maintained Arsenal’s rich league path at the time.

  • = 3. Heung Min Soon (5 winning goals)

Salah (20) is the only one to score more league goals in the 2021-22 season than his son (17). The 29-year-old winner of the club’s opening game against Manchester City in August 2021 was a beautiful thing – player of the match five.

  • = 3. Raul Jimenez (5 winning goals)

After injuring his head last season, the Mexican has gone out with blazing firearms this season. Winners against Southampton, Everton, West Ham, Tottenham and Watford helped his side net 49 points after 32 games – already four more than they achieved under Nuno Espirito Santo in the 2020-21 season.

  • = 2. Diogo Jota (6 goals to win)

Not many gave the Portuguese a chance after the presence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, but he proved to be a great buy by Liverpool.

In 2021-22, among the six league winners, his close to his position in the club’s 2-0 win over Emirates in March 2022 was a far cry from his most important game.

  • = 2. Mohamed Salah (6 goals to win)

Since missing out on the Africa Cup of Nations title, Al Masry has continued to score goals for his club as a goal for the quartet.

His last match win came with a 3-1 win at home to Norwich City in February 2022, but Salah remains the league’s top scorer at 2021-22 (20) and will look to increase that number when United visit Anfield on Tuesday. .

  • 1. Cristiano Ronaldo (7 goals to win)

While he has been criticized by some, he has earned a lot of praise from some members of the United squad. Two home hat-tricks in their 2021-22 victories over Tottenham and Norwich were a showcase for a man determined to drag his team into fourth place.
