We have been branded a one-man team at times this season, with our sensational summer signing Alexis Sanchez banging in the goals since joining the club from Barcelona.
This graphic shows that we are anything but a one-man team. In fact, we actually have more different goalscorers than any other team in the Premier League, according to the Metro.
With goals coming from all over the pitch, we have a whopping 18 different goalscorers in all competitions this season.

Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City are all two behind us on 16, and these numbers go a long way to showing just how much strength in depth we are starting to develop.
Every big team has their talisman, more often than not an out and out goalscorer who can drag their side over the line when needed. Real Madrid have Cristiano Ronaldo, Barcelona have Lionel Messi, and Manchester City have Sergio Aguero. The fact that we have now found a player of that ilk in Alexis Sanchez is absolutely fantastic, and has the potential to propel us into the upper echelons of European football once again.
We are clearly not as reliant on Sanchez’s goals as many people believe however, and are proving that with our displays on the pitch.
