Compared to last season, Chelsea are scoring for fun this season and may well be on their way to getting rid of the narrative that suggests they have a defensive structure.
Just into 5 games this season and the blues have scored 12 goals and conceded just 1. It is literally the perfect start to Chelsea and their title aspirations. They now have a chance to secure the league title better than they did last season.
Here are the top 10 scorers so far.
10. Kai Havertz - 1 goal
The German wonderkid already netted a goal this season and it doesn't seem like he has ways to go before he nets another one.
9. Reece James - 1 goal
James is not the type of player you would expect to be on a top 10 scorers list, particularly in a league like the English Premier League.
8. Antonio Rudiger - 1 goal
The centre back scored his first and only goal of the season yesterday against Tottenham Hotspur with a subtle strike inside the 18 yard box.
7. N'golo Kanté - 1 goal
Kanté also got back to his scoring ways with an edge of the box strike that deflected into the net.
6. Marcos Alonso - 1 goal
Like James, Marcos Alonso's tendency to push forward got him his first goal of the season and has had plenty of chances to get more.
5. Christian Pulisic - 1 goal
The forward has not returned from an injury but has looked dangerous anytime he plays with one goal so far to his name in the campaign.
4. Mateo Kovacic - 1 goal
It is very rare to see Kovacic get in on the goals but he seems to be more progressive in his play this season and will most likely get more.
3. Trevor Chalobah - 1 goal
Chalobah joined the list of Centre Backs who have scored for Chelsea this season. The youngster looks set to play a major role for Thomas Tuchel.
2. Thiago Silva - 1 goal
Silva's header against Tottenham Hotspur got him his first goal of the season and opened the game for Chelsea. He is currently the second oldest player for Chelsea to have scored in a Premier league game.
1. Romelu Lukaku - 3 goals
The striker currently leads the goals in the club's goal scoring charts and will be a player to watch in the race for the golden boot.
