West Ham have become the first team with 150 different Premier League goalscorers, according to Opta Stats. Sebastien Haller got off the mark at Watford to become West Ham’s 150th goalscorer in the Premier League era.
Haller scored his first and second goals as a West Ham player in the 3-1 win at Vicarage Road. His tap-in and overhead kick earned West Ham all three points. And it has also helped West Ham reach a new landmark.
West Ham have had a major turnover of players during their time in the top-flight. This explains why the Hammers have reached this number ahead of other staple Premier League teams like Everton and the top six clubs.
Other potential new scorers for West Ham
West Ham signed a few players this summer who will be hoping to add to West Ham’s tally of 150 unique scorers. After Haller opened his account, fellow striker Albian Ajeti will be hoping for a chance to get on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, Pablo Fornals will be eager to get on the scoresheet.
Goncalo Cardoso – West Ham’s other new signing – is less likely to score in the Premier League this season. But he has scored goals for Portugal’s youth teams so he might add his name to this list if he gets a chance.
There are some other players who were already at West Ham but are yet to score in the league. Jack Wilshere, Arthur Masuaku, Carlos Sanchez and Xande Silva are some players in this position.
