An interesting statistic from Jake Walker of Squawka, Harry Kane score more goals from open play than some notable players.
I would have though a midfielder like Lampard would have scored more goals from open play, he seemed to. He and Gerrard used to hit around 20 goals a season, who are the midfielders who come close to that now? Gareth Bale was the last I suppose.
We bought Paulinho to perform that role but he was only here for the money. He didn't adapt, couldn't be bothered to learn the language, didn't try when he was on the field and left to go to China to earn a pot of gold.
Percentage of Premier League goals that were penalties: Kane (20%) Shearer (22%) Lampard (24%) Le Tissier (25%) Gerrard (27%)
