Ranking the top 10 Premier League managers this season on sub goals scored

Spurs forward Son continues his impressive form with stunning free-kick for South Korea

Reiss Nelson’s dramatic winner against Bournemouth was his third goal as a sub in the Premier League this season which got us thinking about which manager has the best record for sending on goalscorers this season. The number one isn’t a shock, while the presence in the top four of a man who believes Davinson Sanchez for Dejan Kulusevski represents a suitable change in the last 10 minutes of a knockout game when you are 1-0 down on aggregate is a bit more surprising, until you dig a little deeper into those numbers…


10. Julen Lopetegui (Wolves) – 4 goals
Four goals from four different goalscorers with Hwang Hee-chan the latest v Newcastle with a goal that was ultimately pointless. Which is a bit of a pisser.


9. Brendan Rodgers (Leicester) – 4 goals
Four goals from four different scorers – hats off to anyone who got Marc Albrighton as well as Jamie Vardy, Patson Daka and Dennis Praet. Daka is the only one of those four for whom the sub goal doesn’t represent their entire Premier League scoring output for the season.


8. Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) – 4 goals
Even for an occasionally and bafflingly substitute-averse manager, that feels a low number for the league’s top goalscorers. And one of those four came from Erling Haaland in his only substitute appearance of the season, so that doesn’t really count anyway does it? Pep really does make fewer changes than others, though. Just 84 substitutions in 26 games, lower than almost every other manager who’s been around the whole season. The one exception? Mr David Moyes, who has also made 84 substitutions. There beginneth and endeth the list of stats where Guardiola and Moyes cannot be separated.


7. Roberto De Zerbi (Brighton) – 5 goals
A very strong number from just 63 substitutions. Should probably put him above the other fives, but we’ve already set our stall out to use assists as a tiebreaker and there’s only a couple here for a manager about to be linked with every single high-profile job going. And probably the Spurs post too.


6. Thomas Frank (Brentford) – 5 goals
Vitaly Janelt and Yoane Wissa are among the group of 14 players in the Premier League this season with a pair of goals to their name after stepping off the bench.


5. Marco Silva (Fulham) – 5 goals
Manor Solomon has propelled his manager up this list in recent weeks, scoring in each of his last four league games despite playing a combined total of just 146 minutes in those games and crucially…
