Iheanacho Boasts The Best Minutes-Per-Goal Ratio Than Any Other Premier League Striker Ever

Published on:

Manchester City new boy Kelechi Iheanacho’s incredible minutes-per-goal ratio has made him the Premier League’s most lethal striker ever.

The Nigerian striker has proved his mettle after joining Manchester City – having scored some crucial goals for Guardiola’s side.

Iheanacho is mostly used as a sub, but the talented striker has now added a new feather to his name after building his incredible goal scoring record.

Iheanacho topped the minutes-per-goal ratio chart after netting a late goal in Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Hull City on Monday. The chart only includes players who have netted a minimum of ten goals.

He has proved from time to time that he has the ability to come up with clinical finishes but one thing that makes him more special is – to score them quick. After tapping home Man City’s second goal in the 78th minute on Monday, the Nigerian has built an impressive record. He scores a goal in every 95.6 minutes – which is the best in Premier League history.

Iheanacho has made a brilliant start to the season and has scored 12 Premier League goals from 11 starts and has featured as a substitute 27 times.

agueroMan City star Aguero also holds an impressive record and sits second in the chart – with 112 goals, and scores a goal in every 107.1 minutes.

Other big names in the list are – Arsenal legend Thierry Henry with 175 goals (scoring a goal in every 121.8 minutes), Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 12 Premier League goals this season – scoring a goal in every 127.5 minutes.

Thierry HenryOne surprise name in the list would be Adam Le Fondre – who scored 12 goals for Reading and found net in every 124.3 minutes.

Other names on the list include Hernan Crespo, who scored 20 during his brief stint at Chelsea (scoring a goal in every 140.7 minutes).

Some big names who have left the Premier League to test new waters in other parts of the world still remain on the list – with Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Luis Suarez.
