Premier League continues this coming weekend after European engagements. The biggest clash will be between Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester City at Wembley on Monday night. This means Liverpool can go three points clear on top with a home win against Cardiff City on Saturday. Manchester United will host Everton at Old Trafford but Chelsea and Arsenal will travel to face Burnley and Crystal Palace respectively. Today, we want to recognize five stars with most headed goals since 2012/13 in Premier League.
5. Peter Crouch & Andy Carroll- 15 Goals
— Premier League (@premierleague) May 25, 2015
England duo Peter Crouch and Andy Carroll are tied when it comes to headed goals since 2012. Stoke City was relegated last season which means Crouch will not be able to improve his record. Caroll is still hanging on at West Ham United. Both have scored 15 headers since 2012.
4. Harry Kane- 17 Goals
Tottenham Hotspurs forward Harry Kane is one of the most prolific strikers in the World today. In Russia 2018 World Cup, he netted 6 times to lift the Golden Boot. He helped England reach the semi-finals. In fact, since 2012, the striker has scored the fourth highest number of headed goals in the division with 17. He is a threat from all directions. It does not matter where the ball finds him because he will try to beat the goalkeeper.
3. Romelu Lukaku- 22 Goals

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has been criticized in the last few days for failing to score goals. He has netted 4 this season but the team needs more. The Red Devils paid £75 million to sign him from Everton in 2017. Since 2012, the big Belgian has netted 22 headed goals for West Brom, the Toffees, and United. There is no doubt he should be scoring more because he has been getting more minutes on the pitch.
