Top Five Underrated Premier League Strikers

…So I decided to have a look at other strikers in the list and put together a list of the Top Five Under-Rated Strikers In The Premier League.

1. Steven Fletcher

An obvious candidate. The Sunderland striker has 7 Premier League goals this season and has been the one bright light in Sunderlands dismal campaign so far. The thing with Steven Fletcher is that the Scot has always scored goals.

2. Dimitar Berbatov

The Bulgarian is already the top scorer at Fulham and similar to Fletcher is the one bright light in a rather slow start to Fulham’s season. They currently sit 13th in the league, and will look to Berbatov to use all his skill and grace to add some much needed flair to the Fulham attack.

3. Jermaine Defoe

Jermaine Defoe looks a completely different player under Andre Villas-Boas. Given a new lease of life under the Portuguese playing in the lone role up top. Defoe has re-payed his manager with 13 goals in all competitions this season.

Emmanuel Adebayor was first choice for Harry Redknapp last season and is currently struggling to cement his place in the Tottenham first team.

4. Theo Walcott

Im a huge fan of Theo Walcott. I dont believe Theo is under-rated as a player but playing in the central striking role, definintly.

Arsene Wenger clearly thinks so too.

Walcott is Arsenal’s top scorer this season with 10 goals in all competitions. Thats from 17 apperanaces in which 9 of them were from the bench. The Englishman is desperate to replicate Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and convert from a winger to a front man.

5. Shane Long

 The current leading goal scorer for West Brom this season. Shane Long has 7 goals in all competitions this season. The Irishman arrived from Reading and has taken the Premier League by storm.

His tireless work rate ensures that all Premier League defenders never have any time to rest and with crucial goals this season for Albion, the 25 year old is a key member of Steve Clarke’s squad.
