The Surprise Premier League Player Outperforming All Of Europe's Elite

The Surprise Premier League Player Outperforming All Of Europe's Elite

There's been a lot made in recent times about Wayne Rooney being finished as a player but his recent performances for Everton, and one statistic in particular, would suggest that's not the case.

Having returned to his boyhood club in the summer, Manchester United's all-time record goalscorer has nine Premier League goals to his name this season - with only Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Mohamed Salah ahead of him the goalscoring charts.

And incredibly, he has the best shot conversion rate of all the strikers in the top five leagues in Europe.

Rooney is right at the top of the pile, boasting a shot conversation rate of 37.5 per cent after notching nine from 24 shots this season.

Radamel Falcao is next on the list, with the Monaco striker scoring more goals than Rooney, but having a conversion rate of 33.33 per cent, along with Antonio Sanabria from Real Betis.

Mauro Icardi and Edinson Cavani are both in the mix having been very clinical in front of goal this term, but there's no place for the two best players in the world, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Rooney has been in excellent form since Sam Allardyce took the reins at Goodison Park. The Toffees have taken ten points from a possible twelve in Allardyce's time in charge, with Rooney scoring five goals in four games.
